Preparation of 1D ultrathin niobate nanobelts by liquid exfoliation as photocatalysts for hydrogen generation

Author affiliations

Abstract

One-dimensional (1D) ultrathin nanobelts of protonated niobate HxRb1−xNbO3 (HRNO) were prepared through sonication-assisted liquid exfoliation from the parent material RbNbO3 (RNO) in water. The exfoliating mechanism from RNO to the ultrathin HRNO nanobelts was discussed, which would be related to Rb+ hydration and (NbO3)nn hydrolysis. The ultrathin HRNO nanobelts have thicknesses less than 10 nm, and show high photocatalytic activity for hydrogen generation.
