Photoinduced ultrafast charge separation in colloidal 2-dimensional CdSe/CdS-Au hybrid nanoplatelets and corresponding application in photocatalysis.

Multicomponent hybrid nanocrystals (HNC) consisting of a semiconductor and metallic domains are an important class of nanostructured materials demonstrating useful applications and interesting basic knowledge. In this scenario, Au nanoparticle (NP) islands of ∼2 nm have been grown on unique two dimensional (2D) CdSe/CdS core@shell hexagonal… CONTINUE READING
