Mounting energy demand and alternatives to its non-renewable sources have
led to an interest in the arena of photocatalysis. This field has emerged as a promising
greener solution to environmental glitches. Nanomaterials are known to be potential
semiconductors because they exhibit unique chemical and physical properties.
Henceforth, the search and development of nanomaterial photocatalyst is in full swing
and also need of the hour. Nanomaterials such as metal oxides, sulfides, and nitrides
have cropped up as efficient photocatalysts to meet up energy demands by catalysing a
variety of reactions. In this article, we have discussed different types of nanomaterials
and their might to display various photocatalytic reactions.
