Abstract

Photocatalytic water splitting is an environmentally friendly technique for hydrogen production. In this work, we report a novel photocatalyst consisting of two-dimensional (2D) titanium carbide (Ti2C) and graphitic carbon nitride (g-C3N4). We observe substantially enhanced water splitting activities due to the efficient synergistic interaction between Ti2C and g-C3N4. Optimal properties are achieved in the g-C3N4 with a loading of 0.4 wt% Ti2C with a hydrogen production rate of 47.5 mmol h(-1), which is 14.4 times as much as that in the case using pure g-C3N4, and it even outperforms Pt-loaded g-C3N4. We further show that the Ti2C/g-C3N4 has high stability and good reproducibility. We expect that the Ti2C/g-C3N4 can be a photocatalyst for large scale applications because both Ti2C and g-C3N4 are low-cost, abundant, and nontoxic.
