Abstract

Herein, we report an effective and simple strategy to greatly improve the photoactivity of CdO nanorods (NRs) by decorating them with CdS. The CdO–CdS heterostructured NRs grown on a FTO substrate exhibited substantially higher visible-light-driven photoactivity for a PEC cell and the degradation of methylene blue (MB) solution compared to CdO NRs.
