Graphitic GaN–ZnO and corresponding nanotubes

Author affiliations


Graphitic GaN–ZnO is predicted theoretically. It is much softer than graphene and easier to wrap up into a nanotube. The g-GaN–ZnO and corresponding nanotubes have relatively uniform band gap independent of structures. Moreover, they are potential photocatalysts for water splitting and light-emitting in the UV light region.
