There has been increasing attention towards organic materials due to their cost-effectiveness, eco-friendliness, and remarkable efficacy as nanomaterials. Nanocomposites have garnered significant interest from researchers owing to their unique properties. In this study, graphitic
carbon nitride is synthesized using a chemical method and thoroughly characterized employing various techniques. These materials hold considerable importance in the realms of optical and electrical properties. Key characterization methods such as XRD, FTIR, photoluminescence, SEM, EDX, UV-Vis, and Raman spectroscopy are utilized to analyze their morphological, electrical, and optical attributes. XRD analysis indicates particle sizes of less than 25nm, while FTIR spectra reveal compositions within the range of 800 cm-1 to 1650 cm-1. SEM images corroborate the nano-sized nature of the particles. These materials exhibit promising potential in applications such as optoelectronics, sensors, photocatalysis, energy storage devices, solar cells, and photovoltaic devices, as supported by the characterization results. Further exploration of these materials across diverse areas remains an opportunity for future investigation.
