Abstract

Abstract Three compounds, SrTa 2O 6, Sr 4Ta 2O 9, and Sr 5Ta 4O 15, were synthesized by a polymerizable complex method. Their photocatalytic activities for water splitting into H 2 and O 2 were tested and compared against previously published results for Sr 2Ta 2O 7. It was found that the efficiency of the catalysts decreases in the following order: Sr 2Ta 2O 7 >Sr 5Ta 4O 15 > SrTa 2O 6 > Sr 4Ta 2O 9. The relationship between photocatalytic activities and crystal structures is discussed.
