Semiconductor‐based Z‐scheme heterojunction photocatalysts have received considerable attention for solar energy conversion and environmental purification due to their spatially separated reduction and oxidation sites, effective separation and transportation of photo‐excited charge carriers and strong redox ability. With their wide visible‐light responsive range and high photocatalytic activity, metal sulphide is an important material in developing photocatalysts. This review summarizes and highlights recent research progress in sulphide‐based direct Z‐scheme photocatalysts, followed by analysis on the limitations over all‐solid‐state Z‐scheme photocatalyst. Furthermore, the applications and characterization methods of sulphide‐based direct Z‐scheme photocatalyst are summarized. Finally, the challenges and perspectives of sulphide‐based Z‐scheme photocatalyst are discussed. Copyright © 2019 Wiley-VCHVerlagGmbH& Co. KGaA,Weinheim.
