Abstract Photothermal catalysis is a widely researched field in which the reaction mechanism is usually investigated based on the photochemical behavior of the catalytic material. Considering that the adsorption of reactants is essential for catalytic reactions to occur, in this study, the synergistic effect of photothermal catalysis is innovatively elucidated in terms of the electron transfer behavior of reactant adsorption. For the H2 + O2 or CO + H2 reaction systems over a ZnO catalyst, UV ir...

Abstract Although adsorption is regarded as a facile and efficient method to remove heavy metals from polluted water, the disposal of the spent adsorbents remains a great challenge. Here, an “adsorbent-to-photocatalyst” conversion strategy is reported. One-unit-cell calcium silicate hydrate (CSH) nanosheets (∼2.8 nm) are used as an ideal adsorbent, and four typical heavy metals including Cu2+, Zn2+, Co2+, and Cd2+ ions are selected for studies. CSH nanosheets show superiority in the ultrahigh sp...

Abstract The graphitic carbon nitride (g-C3N4) is regarded as a powerful support for constructing heterojunction. How to rationally design high-performance g-C3N4-based heterojunction remains a great challenge. In this work, a kind of spatial distribution heterojunction is prepared by in situ growing ZnIn2S4 (ZIS) nanosheets on g-C3N4 microtubes (T-CN). To highlight the advantage of such a structure design, g-C3N4 bulk (B-CN) and g-C3N4 nanosheets (S-CN) are also used as the supports to obtain B...

The metal/carbon composites prepared by direct pyrolysis of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are regarded as ideal catalysts. However, conventional MOFs show a three-dimensional bulk structure. For bulk MOF-derived catalysts, most active metal sites are confined in the interior and not fully utilized. In this work, metal-organic monolayers (MOLs) are used as the starting precursors to prepare carbon-wrapped metal nanoparticles, which are further employed as catalysts for photocatalytic CO2 reduct...

Cellulose fiber (CF) paper is a low-cost, sustainable, and flexible substrate, which has gained increasing interest recently. Before practical usage, the functionalization of the pristine CF paper is indispensable to meet requirements of specific applications. Different from conventional surface modification or physical mixing methods, we report in situ growth of ultralong hydroxyapatite nanowires (HAPNWs) with lengths larger than 10 μm on the CF paper. HAPNWs are radially aligned on the surface...

Photocatalytic syngas (CO and H2) production with CO2 as gas source not only ameliorates greenhouse effect, but also produces valuable chemical feedstocks. However, traditional photocatalytic system requires noble metal or suffers from low yield. Here, we demonstrate that S vacancies ZnIn2S4 (VS-ZnIn2S4) nanosheets are an ideal photocatalyst to drive CO2 reduction into syngas. It is found that building S vacancies can endow ZnIn2S4 with stronger photoabsorption, efficient electron-hole separatio...

It is fascinating yet challenging to assemble anisotropic nanowires into ordered architectures of high complexity and intriguing functions. We exploited a facile strategy involving oriented etching of a metal-organic fragment (MOF) to advance the rational design of highly ordered nanostructures. As a proof of concept, a microscale MIL-68(In) single crystal was etched with a K3[Co(CN)6] solution to give a microtube composed of aligned MIL-68(In) nanorods. Annealing such a MIL-68(In) microtube rea...
