Self-supported aerogel composed of carbon nitride nanolayers can act as a bifunctional photocatalyst and show enhanced photoreduction and photooxidation performance due to the large surface areas and nitrogen vacancies. The carbon nitride aerogel can catalyze hydrogen evolution at a rate of nearly 4.2 mmol h-1 g-1 and oxidize benzyl alcohols with a high conversion efficiency and selectivity under milder conditions. Note that the activity of carbon nitride aerogel for photochemical alcohol oxidation shows outstanding performance compared with carbon nitride based photocatalysts. Both density functional theory and experimental results demonstrate that the introduction of nitrogen vacancies within the carbon nitride aerogel contributes to the formation of a crooked structure and enhanced adsorption of oxygen compared with a bulk sample.
