Abstract:
Herein, we report that vanadium carbide (VC) can efficiently catalyze photocatalytic H₂ evolution with excellent stability in a dye-sensitized system under visible light irradiation (≥420 nm) and also serve as an versatile H₂ evolution cocatalyst when integrated with various semiconductor photocatalysts.
