Abstract
Abstract The plasmon-induced interfacial charge-transfer transition (PICTT) involves the direct electron transfer from a plasmonic metal to the acceptor state in a semiconductor (SC). Such plasmonic decay is fostered by strong orbital coupling and mixing of electronic levels in plasmonic metals and SC. Although the effectiveness of PICTT for charge transfer has been testified, its realization still remains a great challenge. Herein, we employed a facile electroless reduction strategy for the in-situ growth of copper (Cu) nanoparticles (NPs) over Cu2O ordered octahedrons. Amorphous carbon formed at the Cu2O surface via calcination provides an electroless reduction configuration for the conversion of Cu ions within Cu2O lattice into Cu NPs. The in-situ growth guarantees a rational couple of Cu2O with its derivative Cu NPs. Such a unique arrangement enables extension of optical absorption range as well as achievement of PICTT upon excitation of Cu-localized surface plasmon resonance (LSPR), which promotes desirable CO2 photoreduction activity under near-infrared irradiation. This work provides an effective strategy for constructing plasmonic-metal/metal-oxide composites with enhanced photocatalytic efficiency.

Abstract Photoelectrochemical (PEC) water splitting can convert solar power into clean energy carrier of hydrogen, which is a promising strategy to address the global energy crisis and environmental issues. At present, the sluggish kinetics of the separation and migration of the photo-excited electrons and holes for water oxidation is the bottleneck for the high solar-to-hydrogen efficiency in this field. Herein, we exploit cobalt polyoxometalate (CoPOM) as a novel molecular cocatalyst locating ...

Abstract Sunlight-driven photocatalytic water-splitting for hydrogen (H2) evolution is a desirable strategy to utilize solar energy. However, this strategy is restricted by insufficient light harvesting and high photogenerated electron鈥揾ole recombination rates of TiO2-based photocatalysts. Here, a graphene-modified WO3/TiO2 step-scheme heterojunction (S-scheme heterojunction) composite photocatalyst was fabricated by a facile one-step hydrothermal method. In the ternary composite, TiO2 and WO3 n...

Summary Polymeric carbon nitrides (CNs) are regarded as the most sustainable materials for solar energy conversion via photocatalytic processes. However, the first-generation CNs suffered from imperfect charge separation and insufficient CO2 adsorption. Herein, the construction of a heterojunction material involving highly crystalline CN-nanorods with ordered alignment on graphene is delineated, which improves light harvesting, CO2 capture, and interface charge transfer. The graphene-supported 1...

Hydrogen peroxide (H2 O2 ) is a mild but versatile oxidizing agent with extensive applications in bleaching, wastewater purification, medical treatment, and chemical synthesis. The state-of-art H2 O2 production via anthraquinone oxidation is hardly considered a cost-efficient and environment-friendly process because it requires high energy input and generates hazardous organic wastes. Photocatalytic H2 O2 production is a green, sustainable, and inexpensive process which only needs water and gase...
