P22 virus-like particles constructed Au/CdS plasmonic photocatalytic nanostructures for enhanced photoactivity

Author affiliations

Abstract

Plasmonic photocatalytic nanostructures have been fabricated under mild conditions (room temperature aqueous solution) using genetically engineered bacteriophage P22 virus-like particles (VLP) as a nano-platform. The photodegradation of methylene blue by CdS photocatalyst confined inside VLP can be significantly enhanced by the controlled deposition of gold nanoparticles on the outer shell of VLP-CdS.
