Graphene/graphitic carbon nitride hybrids for catalysis
Benefiting from the large specific surface area, outstanding electronic, optical, thermal and mechanical properties of graphene, as well as the exceptional electronic band structure and good physicochemical stability of graphitic carbon nitride (g-C3N4), graphene/g-C3N4 hybrids present great potential in electrochemical and photochemical catalysis. In this review, we summarize recent research advances in synthesizing graphene/g-C3N4 hybrid-based catalysts, and their applications in energy conversion, environmental decontamination, and other fields. The current limitations and some future trends of graphene/g-C3N4 hybrid-based nanomaterials as advanced catalysts are also discussed.
