Abstract

The graphitic carbon nitride (g-C3N4) which is a two-dimensional conjugated polymer, has drawn broad interdisciplinary attention as a low-cost, metal-free, and visible-light-responsive photocatalyst in the area of environmental remediation. The g-C3N4-based materials have excellent electronic band structures, elec-tron-rich properties, basic surface functionalities, high physicochemical stabilities, and are “earth-abun-dant”. This review summarizes the latest progress related to the design and construction of g-C3N4-based materials and their applications including catalysis, sensing, imaging, and white-light light-emitting-diodes. An outlook on possible further developments in g-C3N4 based research for emerging properties and applications is also included
