Abstract

The rational design and development of highly efficient and stable photocatalysts is a major focus in the field of photocatalysis. The transformation of solar energy into chemical energy is considered a powerful technique for implementing a clean, effective, and affordable energy source. The main challenges associated with this process are stability, low light absorption and fast recombination of charge carriers. Graphitic carbon nitride (GCN) coupled with plasmonic materials has recently been reported as an auspicious technique to promote enhanced photocatalytic activity by transferring plasmonic energy to GCN. In this context, this review article provides a critical comprehensive overview of the development of plasmon mediated GCN based photocatalysts and summarizes the recent progress in the field of energy conversion, environmental remediation and organic transformations. Finally, the summary and future perspectives conclude the review.
