Development and photocatalytic mechanism of monolayer Bi2MoO6 nanosheets for the selective oxidation of benzylic alcohols

Author affiliations

Abstract

Monolayer Bi2MoO6 nanosheets have been successfully prepared for the first time via a bottom-top approach with surfactant assistance, and show 8 times higher activity than bulk Bi2MoO6 for the selective oxidation of benzyl alcohol. Ultrafast charge separation and more acid–base active sites on the monolayer nanosheets are considered to be responsible for the robust photoactivity.
