This review article presents and discusses the recent progress made in the stabilization, protection, improvement, and design of halide perovskite-based photocatalysts, photoelectrodes, and devices for solar-to-chemical fuel conversion. With the target of water splitting, hydrogen iodide splitting, and CO2 reduction reactions, the strategies established for halide perovskites used in photocatalytic particle-suspension systems, photoelectrode thin-film systems, and photovoltaic-(photo)electrocatalysis tandem systems are organized and introduced. Moreover, recent achievements in discovering new and stable halide perovskite materials, developing protective and functional shells and layers, designing proper reaction solution systems, and tandem device configurations are emphasized and discussed. Perspectives on the future design of halide perovskite materials and devices for solar-to-chemical fuel conversion are provided. This review may serve as a guide for researchers interested in utilizing halide perovskite materials for solar-to-chemical fuel conversion.
