Abstract

In the work mentioned in the title of this Comment, Roy et al. claimed highly efficient catalysts for coupled carbon dioxide photochemical reduction and water oxidation [J. Mater. Chem. A, 2016, 4, 8875–8887] and attributed the mechanism to the self-assembly of the catalytic clusters. I propose several points of serious scientific issues in this article related to the characterization of the catalyst clusters, the self-assembled structures, their catalytic performance and characterization and propose opposite conclusions based on the data reported and the literature.
