Abstract

original image

Brought to light: Thin, planar nanojunctions between layered MoS2 and graphitic CN (g-CN) were constructed and allowed fast charge separation across the junction interfaces to facilitate hydrogen photosynthesis. This research represents a proof of concept for the rational fabrication of thin interfacial junctions between co-catalysts and semiconductors having similar layered geometric structures.
