Formatted Abstract/Summary
Stability and efficiency are important to realize the practical applications of photocatalysts for photocatalytic hydrogen evolution from water splitting. ZnO–CdS core–shell nanorods with a wide absorption range were designed and synthesized by a two-step route. The ZnO–CdS core–shell nanorods exhibit stable and high photocatalytic activity for water splitting into hydrogen in the presence of S2− and SO32− as sacrificial reagents. Furthermore, the photocatalytic activity and stability of ZnO–CdS core–shell nanorods/RuO2 co-catalyst is superior to that of ZnO–CdS core–shell nanorods/Pt co-catalyst. The merits of stable ZnO and CdS, core–shell and nanorod structures employed are considered to contribute to the favorable photocatalytic hydrogen evolution of ZnO–CdS core–shell nanorods.
