A metal–organic framework-derived Zn1−xCdxS/CdS heterojunction for efficient visible light-driven photocatalytic hydrogen production

Abstract

ZCS-C (ZnCdS/CdS) QDs were synthesized via low-temperature vulcanization using zeolitic imidazolate framework-8 (ZIF-8) nanoparticles as a precursor, cation exchange, and heterojunction construction. Without any precious metal as a cocatalyst, the photocatalytic hydrogen production rate of ZCS-C-3 QDs reached 2.7 mmol g−1 h−1 under visible light irradiation. The optimized sample exhibited an outstanding chemical stability and recyclability, which is superior to most of the reported Zn1−xCdxS-based photocatalysts.
