© 2019 Elsevier B.V. We report on the synthesis of mesoporous graphitic C3N4 (MGCN-6) with 3D porous structure and Ia3d symmetry and controllable surface properties through a simple polymerization of an environmentally benign and non-toxic guanidine hydrochloride as a C and N precursor using KIT-6 with variable pore sizes as templates for Suzuki coupling reaction. The pore diameters (3.1¿4.2 nm), specific surface areas (207¿303 m2 g-1), and the specific pore volumes (0.58¿0.71 cm3 g-1) of the MGCN-6 materials are finely controlled by varying the pore size of the templates used. The nano cavities of MGCN-6 with the highest specific surface area and a free amine groups are effectively utilized to chelate with Pd(OAC)2 and applied the prepared catalysts for Suzuki coupling reaction between aryl halides with phenylboronic acid derivatives under very mild and sustainable reaction conditions. The Pd(OAC)2/MGCN-6 is found to be very active and stable and exhibits an excellent reactivity and selectivity for all of substrates regardless of aryl halides with electron-withdrawing and electron donating groups at room temperature. The activity of the Pd(OAC)2/MGCN-6 is much higher than that of non-porous bulk graphitic carbon nitride and 2D mesoporous carbon nitride.

An integrated photocatalyst was prepared and its photoelectrocatalytic behavior for solar energy conversion was investigated. To make an integrated photocatalyst for hydrogen evolution, Pt and CdS clusters were embedded in zeolite as a cocatalyst and a photocatalyst, respectively. Pt particles were embedded in zeolite Y by ion exchange reaction with Pt (NH3)42+ and activation and reduction processes were followed. CdS clusters in zeolite Y cages were prepared by ion exchange reaction with Cd2+ and sulfurization with Na2S in aqueous solution was followed. The existence of CdS clusters in the cavities of zeolite Y was detected by IR spectra. UV absorption edges of the samples prepared show blue shifts about 0.03-0.12 eV from the edge of bulk CdS, which is an indication of CdS clusters formed in zeolite Y. The pore structure of samples was analyzed by BET and Langmuir method. The solar energy conversion into hydrogen was investigated, where sodium tartrate solution was used as a hole scavenger. We could observe that 1 wt% Pt supported sample was the most effective photocatalyst for hydrogen evolution (62 µL/mg after 4 hour reaction).

Toluene is an aromatic pollutant that can be widely found in many industries. Due to its toxicity, its total decomposition has been investigated by many researchers using various ways. One alternative way is the usage of catalyst and light to decompose toluene. However, so far, it is still remained as a challenge. On the other hand, the need to use cheap, abundant, and safe sources to prevent our sustainability makes the utilization of solar energy one of the ideal solutions for our problems. As visible light is the main part of our solar energy, the development of photocatalysts that able to work under visible light irradiation is highly required. One of the efforts to realize it is by designing materials that able to absorb visible light especially that of longer wavelength, such as up to 600 nm. A red color-material, Tantalum (V) nitride (Ta3N5) is one such potential photocatalyst. Its photocatalytic activity was discovered for water splitting reaction under visible light irradiation [1]. Recent progress reported that Ta 3N5 nanoparticles showed higher activity than the bulk Ta3N5 for hydrogen evolution [2] and methylene blue degradation [3]. ©2010 IEEE.
