Exploring efficient semiconductors for water splitting to produce hydrogen is considered as one of the most promising approaches to solve the world energy crisis. Herein, for the first time, we highlight that metal-free siloxene nanosheets can serve as a photocatalyst for efficient water splitting without the addition of any cocatalyst or sacrificial agent.
