Title: Unexpected visible light driven photocatalytic activity without cocatalysts and sacrificial reagents from a (GaN) 1–x(ZnO) x solid solution synthesized at high pressure over the entire composition range

Abstract

(GaN) 1–x(ZnO) x synthesized at high pressure produces H 2 in the presence of visible light without any cocatalysts or sacrificial reagents.
