    A review covers the development of dye-modified inorganic semiconductor photocatalysts for water splitting reaction; the effects of dye-modification on the water splitting activity of the photocatalysts using visible light energy for solar energy conversion; the photocatalytic activities of metal oxides sulphides oxysulfides and oxynitrides enhanced by dye-modification; and the charge transfer mechanism of the dye-modified photocatalyst a two-step excitation process similar to that of photosynthesis.
