    Graphitic Carbon Nitride Quantum Dots (g-C3N4): Fundamentals and Applications
    Author(s): Lyano H Madkour*

    As a novel C and N based two-dimensional material, graphitic carbon nitride quantum dots (g-C3N4) QDs is regarded as a new generation of photocatalyst and has been widely used in the field of environmental photocatalysis. In recent years, graphitic carbon nitride has become one of the very exciting sustainable materials, due to its unusual properties and promising applications as a heterogeneous catalyst in water splitting and organic contaminant degradation. A variety of modifications have been reported for this nanostructured material with the use of carbonaceous materials to enhance its potential applications. Carbon nitrides (C3N4) are renowned organic semiconductors with a band gap of 2.7 eV, which are connected via tri-s-triazine-based forms. Graphitic carbon nitride (g-C3N4) is considered as an attractive, efficient and newly generated promising visible light–driven photo.. View More»
