A novel method for the development of a carbon quantum dot/carbon nitride hybrid photocatalyst that responds to infrared light irradiation

Author affiliations

Abstract

A novel method has been developed to combine carbon quantum dots (CQDs) with carbon nitride at 450 °C to synthesize an infrared-responsive photocatalyst. In the hybrid photocatalyst, CQDs act as the light source to upconvert infrared light to visible light, while carbon nitride utilizes the light emitted by CQDs to degrade pollutants.
