Carbon dioxide droplets stabilized by g-C3N4

Author affiliations


Here we propose the emulsification of CO2 and water with graphitic carbon nitride (g-C3N4), in which the g-C3N4-stabilized CO2 droplets were utilized as “microreactors” for in situ photocatalytic CO2 reduction. The g-C3N4 sheets assembling at the CO2/water interface can serve both as an emulsifier and photocatalyst, which can greatly promote the conversion of CO2 to formic acid.
