Quantum confinement controlled photocatalytic water splitting by suspended CdSe nanocrystals

Abstract

The photocatalytic hydrogen production of CdSe nanocrystals (1.75–4.81 nm) in the presence of aqueous sodium sulphite depends exponentially on the bandgap of the particles, confirming that the material’s activity is controlled by the degree of quantum confinement.
