We present a facile nonpolar organic solution synthesis and processing method for water splitting photoanodes based on iron oxide with a relatively low sintering temperature (550 [degree]C). The photocurrent of these photoanodes can reach 3.3 mA cm-2 at 1.23 V vs. RHE with high IPCE and stability{,} which makes them highly attractive candidate photoanodes for hydrogen generation.
