A novel photocatalytic material (Pt,Cd0.8Zn0.2S)/ HLaNb2O7 was fabricated by successive intercalation and exchange reactions. The (Pt,Cd0.8Zn0.2S)/HLaNb 2O7 possessed a gallery height less than 0.5 nm and showed a broad absorption with wavelength over 370-500 nm. Using (Pt,Cd 0.8Zn0.2S)/HLaNb2O7 as catalyst, the photocatalytic H2 evolution was more than 160 cm3 • h-1 • g-1 in the presence of Na2S as a sacrificial agent under irradiation with wavelength more than 290 nm from a 100-W mercury lamp. Furthermore, the catalyst showed photocatalytic activity even under visible light irradiation.
