Abstract

original image

Hybrid heaven The cover picture shows a new plasmonic photocatalytic mechanism of a visible-light-driven plasmonic photocatalyst Ag/AgBr/g-C3N4 (g=graphite-like), proposed on the basis of surface plasmon resonance (SPR) and charge separation of Ag. In their Full Paper on p. 2343 ff., W.-D. Zhang and Y.-S. Xu describe how their metal–semiconductor ternary composite photocatalyst, compared with bare g-C3N4 or Ag/AgBr nanoparticles, shows respective 28- and 6-fold improvements in the degradation rate toward rhodamine B under visible-light irradiation.
