Construction of dual-channel mode for wide-spectrum-driven photocatalytic H2 production

Abstract

The composite involved heavily-incorporated HxWO3 (H0.53WO3/CdS) is successfully synthesized by a facile method of photo-assisted in situ reduction and applied in photocatalytic water splitting into H2, and its photocatalytic activity is about 70 times greater than that of pure CdS. Such heterostructure shows wide spectral response in the UV-vis-NIR range, which is attributed to the LSPR of H0.53WO3. In the vis–NIR-driven photocatalytic water reduction process, a unique dual-path for generating H2 from water has been constructed, which contributed by synergistic photocatalysis effect between the charge-carrier separation driven by Z-scheme and hot electrons injection induced by LSPR(Localized Surface Plasmon Resonance).
