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

Author affiliations

Abstract

The composite with heavily incorporated HxWO3 (H0.53WO3/CdS) was successfully synthesized by a facile method of photo-assisted in situ reduction and applied in photocatalytic water splitting into H2. Its photocatalytic activity is about 70 times greater than that of pure CdS. Such a 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 is constructed, which is contributed by the synergistic photocatalysis effect between the charge-carrier separation driven by the Z-scheme and hot electron injection induced by LSPR (Localized Surface Plasmon Resonance).
