Enhanced charge carrier separation of manganese(ii)-doped graphitic carbon nitride: formation of N–Mn bonds through redox reactions

Author affiliations

Abstract

High photogenerated charge carrier recombination restricts the photoactivity of graphitic carbon nitride (g-C3N4), a promising photocatalyst. Herein, MnII doped g-C3N4, obtained through redox reactions between urea and a permanganate in an inert gas, exhibits significantly enhanced photoinduced charge carrier separation and photoactivity. This work opens a new avenue for doping of g-C3N4.
