Recent development of plasmon-mediated photocatalysts and their potential in selectivity regulation

Abstract

Solar energy for chemical production with high product selectivity under ambient conditions has attracted considerable attention. The development of photocatalytic nanomaterials as antennas to absorb light irradiation plays a pivotal role. Hence, catalysis science and technology is indispensable in these transformations in order to achieve a high conversion and selectivity. This review mainly deals with the development and structure design of photocatalytic plasmonic nanomaterials in clean chemicals synthesis and highlights the mechanism on regulating catalytic selectivity.
