52_21i/2013Inside Cover: Carbon-Coated CdS Petalous Nanostructures with Enhanced Photostability and Photocatalytic Activity (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 21/2013)

Carbon-coated CdS petalous nanostructures have been synthesized through a one-pot solvothermal method, as described by Y. Hu, X. W. Lou, and co-workers in their Communication on page 5636 ff. The carbon nanocoating serves multiple functions, including protection of the CdS surface, enhancement of visible-light absorption, and facilitating the separation of photogenerated charges. As a result, this CdS–C nanohybrid photocatalyst exhibits significantly enhanced photostability and photocatalytic activity.
