Light Driven Epoxidation of Olefins with Graphene Oxide/g-C3N4 Supported Mo (Salen) Complex

Abstract

A novel Schiff (Mo) based complex supported on GO surface was successfully prepared, which further combined with the graphitic carbon nitride (g-C3N4) polymer (Mo-GO/g-C3N4) to make it photo-activated. The photocatalytic activity of the resulting nano-composite was tested under simulated sunlight (AM 1.5) in the epoxidation of various olefin substrates. Remarkably, surface photovoltage (SPV) measurement was applied to explore electron acceleration effect caused by GO and molybdenum. It was demonstrated that both GO and metal active centers can efficiently accelerate the electron transfer, which would finally contribute to the superior catalytic performance.
