The development of highly efficient photocatalytic systems with rapid photogenerated charge separation and high surface catalytic activity is highly desirable for the storage and conversion of solar energy, yet remains a grand challenge. Herein, a conceptionally new form of atomically dispersed Co-P3 species on CdS nanorods (CoPSA-CdS) is designed and synthesized for achieving unprecedented photocatalytic activity for the dehydrogenation of formic acid (FA) to hydrogen. X-ray absorption near edge structure, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, and time-resolved photoluminescence results confirm that the Co-P3 species have a unique electron-rich feature, greatly improving the efficiency of photogenerated charge separation through an interface charge effect. The in situ attenuated total reflection infrared spectra reveal that the Co-P3 species can achieve much better dissociation adsorption of FA and activation of CH bonds than traditional sulfur-coordinated Co single atom-loaded CdS nanorods (CoSSA-CdS). These two new features make CoPSA-CdS exhibit the unprecedented 50-fold higher activity in the photocatalytic dehydrogenation of FA than CoSSA-CdS, and also much better activity than the Ru-, Rh-, Pd-, or Pt-loaded CdS. Besides, CoPSA-CdS also shows the highest mass activity (34309 mmol gCo -1 h-1 ) of Co reported to date. First-principles simulation reveals that the Co-P3 species herein can form an active PHCOO intermediate for enhancing the rate-determining dissociation adsorption of FA.
