In Situ Irradiated X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy on the Ag-Zn0.5Cd0.5S Core–Shell Structure and the Hydrogen Production Activity

Shen-wei Bai, Hui Mei,*Gang-qiang Zhu, Ming-gang Zhang, Wei-zhao Huang and Lai-fei Cheng DOI: https://doi.org/10.1021/acssuschemeng.0c01085 In this paper, the authors develop a Ag core – Zn0.5Cd0.5S semiconductor shell nanoparticle for the photocatalytic production of hydrogen from water (Figure 1). The aim was to develop a nanocomposite which may utilise the intrinsic […]
