Photocatalytically active boron oxynitride quantum dots (BNO QDs) were produced via a bottom-up hydrothermal synthesis. This is the first demonstration of BN-based quantum dots being employed as photocatalysts. The material facilitates CO2 photoreduction, with evolution rates and quantum efficiencies exceeding those for P25 TiO2, the benchmark catalyst in the field.
