Simultaneous photocatalytic H2 generation and organic synthesis over crystalline–amorphous Pd nanocube decorated Cs3Bi2Br9†
Cs3Bi2Br9 decorated with crystalline–amorphous Pd nanocubes as cocatalysts is reported to photocatalytically coproduce ca. 1400 μmol h−1 g−1 of H2 and benzaldehyde from the selective benzyl alcohol oxidation. This route offers an alternative for photocatalytic H2 generation using metal halide perovskites under mild conditions.
