Several recent designs or choices of nanomaterials for photocatalysis: Ag/AgCl composite, silicate and Bi2MoO6

Most recently, great and much attention is still focused on photocatalytic chemistry due to its potential solution to some problems including the worldwide energy shortage as well as environmental protection. This article reviews the most recent progresses on photocatalytic research in China and other countries, which refers to the specific applications of Ag/AgCl composite, silicate and Bi2MoO6 nanomaterials in water splitting for hydrogen generation and photodegradation of pollutants. The review shows a survey of efforts to explore suitable materials and to optimize their energy band configurations for designing and choice of advanced photocatalysts.
