Wei Group published in Chemical Reviews

A paper from the Wei group has been published in Chemical Reviews. The article titled “Surface-Plasmon-Driven Hot Electron Photochemistry” reports the recent theoretical and experimental approaches for understanding the underlying photophysical processes in hot electron generation and discusses various electron-transfer models on both plasmonic metal nanostructures and plasmonic metal/semiconductor heterostructures. The review highlights the plasmon-driven hot electron photochemical reactions and specifically pointed out the remaining challenges in the field and future opportunities for addressing the low reaction efficiencies in hot-electron-induced photochemistry.
