Synthesis and characterization of BiOCl–Cu2ZnSnS4 heterostructure with enhanced photocatalytic activity

Abstract Cu2ZnSnS4 QDs (5–7 nm) were synthesized by chemical coprecipitation route. Using prepared Cu2ZnSnS4 QDs, a new type of BiOCl–Cu2ZnSnS4 heterostructures were prepared using bismuth nitrate as a precurssor and potassium chloride as a source of chlorine at 100 °C, 4 h. BiOCl–Cu2ZnSnS4 heterost...
