Three in one: atomically dispersed Na boosting the photoreactivity of carbon nitride towards NO oxidation

Author affiliations

Abstract

Single atomic Na (Na-SA) was successfully anchored on the surface of carbon nitride nanosheets (CN-NSs) by simple direct calcination of the hydrothermally NaHCO3 pretreated dicyandiamide (DCDA) precursor. The introduction of Na-SA results in the electron transfer from Na to the complex N2C, not only improving the light absorption and increasing the adsorption ability, but also stimulating the separation of charge carriers, which sharply improves the NO removal rate from 36.8% to 52.5%, and prevents the production of toxic NO2 by-product. The excellent photo-stability makes Na-SA/NN-NSs a good candidate photocatalyst for air purification.
