Highly Efficient Colloidal MnxCd1−xS Solid Solution Nanorods for Photocatalytic Hydrogen Generation

Abstract

In this study, for the first time, a series of MnxCd1−xS solid solution nanorods featured precisely controlled band gap and suitable conduction band position were fabricated with a hot-injection synthesis under N2 atmosphere. Correspondingly, the colloidal Mn0.5Cd0.5S solid solution exhibited the highest photocatalytic H2 generation rate of 26000 μmol g−1 h−1, which is approximately 216 times higher than pristine h-CdS and 565 times higher than γ-MnS alone. Moreover, the MnxCd1−xS solid solution showed good photocatalytic stability because of the proper conduction band position and high crystallinity. This work demonstrates that this hot-injection strategy for developing highly efficient MnxCd1−xS solid solution is promising for other binary or multicomponent solid solution for a variety of photocatalytic applications.
