Abstract

Graphitic carbon nitride with photo-attached platinum nanoparticles of typically 2.5 nm diameter, Pt@g-C 3 N 4 , is known for photo-generation of hydrogen in aqueous environments and in the presence of hole quenchers. Here, the generation of photocurrents from photo‑hydrogen production is observed at a platinum electrode, driven by oxalate or glucose hole quenchers, and enhanced with a polymer of intrinsic microporosity PIM-1 coated over the Pt@g-C 3 N 4 deposit. The ability of PIM-1 to create triphasic conditions and to capture hydrogen leads to enhanced photocurrent responses, even in the presence of ambient oxygen. Effects are discussed in terms of triphasic solid|liquid|hydrogen gas-based electrode processes. A glucose-concentration-dependent (super-Langmuirian) photo-response is observed. Possible applications are proposed in glucose sensing and in hydrogen-mediated photovoltaics.
