|Abstract||To store solar energy into chemical energy and ameliorate over-emission of CO2 in modern society, the promising photoelectrocatalytic reduction of CO2 into multicarbon products (C2+) has inspired scientists to discover new efficient catalysts. Herein, a series of new heterojunctions of polypyrrole/TiO2 (PTCN-X, X is pyrolytic temperature) were prepared by a facile method of in-situ oxidizing polymerazation of pyrrole onto the surface of TiO2 and subsequently treating with temperature-controlled pyrolysis. An interesting phenomenon was discovered that the p-n heterojunction of PTCN gradually transferred to n-n heterojunction of PTCN-400. The optimal n-n heterojunctions of PTCN-400 have the highest selectivity of C2+ products (71.4 %) under iirridiation at −1.2 V. Further investigation reveals that the band structure of PTCN-X heterojunctions can be tuned by various pyrolytic temperature to form more defects and pyridine-N active sites, which enhances separation efficiency of photogenerated electron-holes and selectivity of C2+ products. © 2020 Elsevier B.V.|
