Ca2-αLNb3-βXβO10 nanosheets ((α, β=0-0.14), X= Rh(LaRh), Mn(LaMn), Fe(LaFe), Ni(LaNi)) were synthesized by exfoliation using the surfactant aided sonication method. These nanosheets demonstrated superior photocatalytic activities for water splitting into hydrogen at room temperature. SEM-EDX images and spectra confirmed the morphology and composition of the materials where doped metal precursors inserted into the heterogeneous structure aided the photocatalytic activity.
