Enhancement of visible light photocatalysis by grafting ZnO nanoplatelets with exposed (0001) facets onto a hierarchical substrate

Author affiliations

Abstract

A ZnO nanocatalyst with a high percentage exposure of (0001) facets embedded on a hierarchical flower-like matrix has been prepared by an in situ topotactic transformation of a layered double hydroxide precursor, and exhibits significantly higher visible light photocatalytic performance than other ZnO nanomaterials with fewer exposed (0001) facets.
