Layered metallic vanadium diboride as an active cocatalyst for efficient dye-sensitized photocatalytic hydrogen evolution

Abstract

Here, we report that layered metallic vanadium diboride (VB2) can function as an active cocatalyst for efficiently catalyzing photocatalytic hydrogen evolution in a dye-sensitized system under visible light irradiation. In a Erythrosin B-triethanolamine (ErB-TEOA) molecular system, the highest turnover number (TON) of hydrogen evolution based on ErB reaches 40. In addition, VB2 outperforms V2O5, VS2, VN, and VC for photocatalytic hydrogen evolution.
