Title: The impact of nitrogen doping and reduced-niobium self-doping on the photocatalytic activity of ultra-thin Nb 3 O 8 - nanosheets

Abstract

Ultra-thin [Nb 3O 8] -nanosheets with N doping, reduced-Nb doping and N/reduced-Nb codoping were fabricated by combining chemically controlled syntheses and liquid exfoliation, which enable comparative studies on the doping effect for photocatalytic H 2evolution.
