In4SnS8 ultrathin nanosheets: a ternary sulfide with fast adsorption–visible-light photocatalysis dual function

Author affiliations

Abstract

Ultrathin In4SnS8 nanosheets have been successfully synthesized via a facile thermal decomposition method. The average thickness of these In4SnS8 nanosheets is only 3.8 nm, comprising about five atomically thick layers. To our knowledge, this is the thinnest In4SnS8 nanosheet synthesized using a solution-phase chemical method. The resulting ultrathin In4SnS8 nanosheets exhibit fast adsorption–visible-light photocatalysis dual function for various organic dyes, suggesting their potential application in environmental remediation, solar energy conversion, and advanced optical/electric nanodevices.
