Design of green, safe, and sustainable process for the synthesis of hydrogen peroxide (H2 O2 ) is a very important subject. Early reported processes, however, require hydrogen (H2 ) and palladium-based catalysts. Herein we propose a photocatalytic process for H2 O2 synthesis driven by metal-free catalysts with earth-abundant water and molecular oxygen (O2 ) as resources under sunlight irradiation (λ>400 nm). We use graphitic carbon nitride (g-C3 N4 ) containing electron-deficient aromatic… CONTINUE READING
