Cu-Zn nanoparticles promoter for selective carbon dioxide reduction and its application for visible-light-active Z-scheme system using water as electron donor

Abstract

Selective carbon dioxide photoreduction to produce formic acid was achieved under visible light irradiation using water molecules as electron donors, similar to natural plants, based on the construction of a Z-scheme light harvesting system modified with a Cu-Zn alloy nanoparticle co-catalyst. The Faradic efficiency of our Z-scheme system for HCOOH generation was over 50 % under visible light irradiation.
