Abstract
In the recent research on photocatalysis, the conversion of green and sustainable technology has received increasing attention due to its potential to solve energy problem in an eco-friendly approach. The present review focuses on highly efficient and low-cost photocatalysts and various metal-free photocatalytic materials that have been designed and developed in recent years for energy conversion and environmental purification as a result of their unique properties and characteristics. This critical review presents the recent crucial applications and progress in metal-free photocatalysis, including Water splitting using few-layer C 2N, Renewable energy production using photofuelcells, Water purification using UV light, Deodorizing effect, Air purifying effect, Anti fogging and self-cleaning as well as Hazardous waste remediation. The review concludes with suggestions for future research topics. It is hoped that this review will facilitate deep-level investigation on the subject and provide new opportunities to develop metal-free photocatalytic materials with other important applications in the nearest future.
