Bismuth-rich bismuth oxyhalides for environmental and energy photocatalysis

Bismuth-rich bismuth oxyhalides for environmental and energy photocatalysis
Compared to bismuth oxyhalides (BiOX; X=Cl, Br and I), bismuth-rich bismuth oxyhalides (Bi x O y X z ; X=Cl, Br and I) possess higher stabilization and more suitable band structure for photocatalysis. As a new type of photocatalyst, Bi x O y X z exhibit excellent photocatalytic properties for environmental purification (e.g. pollutant degradation), generation of solar fuels, production of hydrogen from water, CO2 conversion, nitrogen fixation and organic synthesis. The purpose of this review is to provide a concise summary on bismuth oxyhalides, including synthesis, modification and photocatalytic application of Bi x O y X z photocatalysts. We also offer insight into future research trends and developments including potential applications for Bi x O y X z photocatalysts.
