ZnO@Zn3P2 quantum dots (QDs) are synthesized, with emission from yellow to red. Photoelectrochemical investigations reveal that the current and voltage of the QD-derivatized electrodes show a response upon illumination. A photocurrent of ca. 8 nA cm−2 for a monolayer of ZnO@Zn3P2 QDs deposited on indium tin oxide (ITO) electrode is recorded.
