Congratulations to Cancan Zhang for her paper accepted by Journal of Energy Chemistry!
nanomaterials are sources of light, heat and electrons at nanometer scale.
Given the outstanding performance in harvesting and converting solar energy
under visible light irradiation and the combination of catalytic materials,
hybrid nanomaterials with plasmonic activity have recently emerged as a new
class of advanced photocatalysts, usually exhibiting higher catalytic activity compared
with their monometallic counterparts. The authors reviewed the recent progress
on synthesis of plasmonic hybrid nanomaterials and their applications in
photocatalysis, including H2 production, CO2 reduction
and N2 fixation. Looking forward to giving systematic and valuable
reference on plasmonic solar to chemical energy conversion.
