Abstract:


Architectural photocatalysts have considered to be an eco-friendly and green technology for protection and remediation of environment and the emergence of these photocatalysts also provides a new way for solar energy conversion and utilization as it only works under sunlight irradiation. Based on latest research from related group and other colleagues, this paper mainly reviews the different synthesis of architectural photocatalysts and its working mechanism and introduces some relevant applications, such as the degradation of organic pollutants, the photocatalytic hydrogen production and CO2 reduction and so on. What's more, the opportunities and challenges encountered in the area of architectural photocatalysts and their potential applications in more fields have been briefly illustrated.

Keywords:

Applications, architectural photocatalysts, photocatalytic activity, semiconductor, sunlight irradiation, synthesis.
