Photocatalytic HC2Nb3O10 samples were prepared by a polymerizable complex method and tested for H2 evolution from aqueous methanol solution under UV-light irradiation. These samples demonstrate significant enhancement in the hydrogen production rate compared to the reference samples synthesized by conventional solid-state reaction.
