Carbon nitride thin films have been grown using the supramolecular precursors on transparent conductive substrates. The growth processes will be discussed in detail. The carbon nitrides films can be used as electron acceptor in polymer solar cells and emitting layers in LEDs. Furthermore, ultrathin carbon nitride layers have been coated onto TiO2 as a visible-light sensitizer for photoelectrochemical cells.
