Abstract:

The PI was successful in achieving their proposed objectives. They were able to preparing SiO2 core-metal sulfide shell nanoparticles with tunable thickness and focused their work on better coverage and crystallinity of SiO2metal sulfide nanoparticles for future SPR studies and hydrogen production. In this work ZIS was used as the model photocatalyst. ZIS shells were synthesized using different solvents and results showed that ZIS synthesized in water exhibits a better crystallinity and a higher hydrogen production. As the results, we found the highest hydrogen generation efficiency was measured at 240 C synthesis. The PI is currently working on submitting publications in peer reviewed journals.
