About the book

This book deals with three hot topics related to the synthesis, applications, and technologies of carbon nitride. The introductory chapter deals with the synthesis and Photocatalytic properties of graphitic carbon nitride. The other chapters will cover many topics, such as Graphitic carbon nitride for high capacity hydrogen storage and synthesis and characterization of carbon nitride as coating and activation materials for organic pollutants degradation. In addition, the book will cover, Nano Composites of graphitic carbon nitride for luminescence and photocatalytic applications, Graphitic carbon nitride as catalyst support in fuel cells and water electrolyzers, and Graphitic carbon nitride composite as semiconductors and photocatalytic fibers. The new approaches such as graphitic carbon nitride-based nanocomposites, graphitic carbon nitride from melamine and uric acid, and synthesis of metal-free ultrathin graphitic carbon nitride sheet will be the synthesis for photocatalytic degradation of organic dyes. This book will encourage readers, researchers, and scientists to look further into the frontier topics of carbon nitride and open new possible research paths for further novel development.
