Facile synthesis of carbon nitride micro-/nanoclusters with photocatalytic activity for hydrogen evolution

Author affiliations

Abstract

Morphologically diverse carbon nitride micro-/nanoclusters (nanowires, nanoribbons, and nanosheets) were synthesized by polycondensation of cyanamide on diatom substrates. The formation mechanism is speculated to be one dimensional growth and two dimensional extensions on diatom frustules with high curvature. Platinum deposited micro-/nanoclusters showed good performance for photocatalytic hydrogen evolution.
