Graphical Abstract: Molydebnum Oxide thin film photoelectrode by anodisation for solar energy harvesting, storing and utilisation

Photogenic: Subjected to positive bias and illumination, α-MoO3 demonstrates the capability to generate and store photoexcited charges in its layered structure through the intercalation of alkali cations. The electrolyte pH during anodization can be used to modulate the crystal structure of α-MoO3, which in turn governs charge storage and mobility properties
