We investigated semiconductor characteristics for polymeric carbon nitride as a metal-free photocatalyst working with visible light and have shown that the efficiency of hydrogen production by photochemical water reduction can be improved by approximately 1 order of magnitude by introducing the right type of mesoporosity into polymeric C(3)N(4). We anticipate a wide rang of potential application of C(3)N(4) as energy transducers for artificial photosynthesis in general, especially with a 3D continuous nanoarchitecture. Moreover, the results of finding photoactivity for carbon nitride nanoparticles can enrich the discussion on prebiotic chemistry of the Earth, as HCN polymer clusters are unequivocal in the solar system.
