Carbon self-doping induced high electronic conductivity and photoreactivity of g-C3N4

Author affiliations

Abstract

We theoretically and experimentally demonstrate that carbon self-doping could induce intrinsic electronic and band structure change of g-C3N4via the formation of delocalized big π bonds to increase visible light absorption and electrical conductivity as well as surface area and thus enhance both photooxidation and photoreduction activities.
