In this study, non-noble metal Cd decorated cubic phase CdS (CdS/Cd) thin layer on a millimeter-scale chitosan-Mg(OH) xerogel beads (CMB) were elaborately designed and successfully synthesized via facile hydrated electrons (e) assistant strategy. The in-situ formation of metallic Cd was driven by e generated from UV/NaSO process. Owing to metallic Cd, [email protected]/Cd exhibited better visible-light absorption ability and more efficient separation capability for photo-induced carriers, its hydrogen production efficiency was about threefold improved compared to [email protected] Read More
