Graphitic carbon nitride (g-C<inf>3</inf>N<inf>4</inf>) was produced on a large scale by the pyrolysis of urea under ambient pressure without additive assistance. The retainable pyrolysis-generated self-supporting atmosphere and the reaction temperature are two necessary conditions. This g-C <inf>3</inf>N<inf>4</inf> as photocatalyst shows recyclable adsorption and photocatalytic activity under visible light. © The Royal Society of Chemistry.
