The photodissociative splitting of water has been studied in gas phase on a plane solid surface. A hydrogen sensitive Pd‐metal‐oxide‐semiconductor (MOS) structure was coated with 1–2 nm TiOx and exposed to water vapor and ultraviolet light. A natural separation of the produced hydrogen and oxygen occurs over the Pd film of the structure and the produced hydrogen is monitored by the electric behavior of the MOS device. The results suggest that suitably treated thin Pd membranes may be of interest for studying the continuous photodissociation of water.
