The Synergistic Effect of Heteroatom Doping and Vacancy on The Reduction of CO2 by Photocatalysts

Publication Name



Against the backdrop of rapid world economic growth and energy shortages, we are facing a big challenge about carbon-containing resources converting. To solve the problems of energy and environmental, developing the catalysts to converse the carbon-containing resources with high-efficiency is very important. It has been proved that the vacancy and heteroatom doping can promote the activity of photocatalyst to reduce CO2. Herein, we provide a concise overview on the synergistic effects of defect and heteroatom doping about how to improve the activity of photocatalysts to reduce CO2, and to make a future perspective in the synergistic effects of vacancy and heteroatom doping for photocatalytic CO2 reduction.
