Folded-Up Thin Carbon Nanosheets Grown on Cu2O Cubes for Improving Photocatalytic Activity

Abstract

Fabricating carbon film on semiconductor micro/nanocrystals improves photocatalytic performances, but carbon coating often plunges activity because of covering reaction sites. We report synthesis of folded-up thin carbon nanosheets on Cu2O cubes by surface etching, which increased 2 times photocatalytic activity of Au/Cu2O due to enhanced light scattering, electric conductivity, and adsorption.
