Congratulations to Cancan Zhang for her paper accepted by Journal of Energy Chemistry!

        Plasmonic 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 Nfixation. Looking forward to giving systematic and valuable reference on plasmonic solar to chemical energy conversion.
