A new dimension: The doping of amorphous poly(triazine imide) (PTI) through ionothermal copolymerization of dicyandiamide with 4-amino-2,6-dihydroxypyrimidine (4AP) results in triazine-based carbon nitrides with increased photoactivity for water splitting compared to crystalline poly(triazine imide) (PTI/Li+Cl, see picture) and melon-type carbon nitrides. This family of carbon nitride semiconductors has potential as low-cost, environmentally clean photocatalysts for solar fuel production.
