Abstract

Hydrothermally grown iodate, K8Ce2I18O53, featuring polar 0D [Ce(IO3)8](4-) units, has shown the highest visible light driven (VLD) photocatalytic activity in metal iodates reported before. The enhanced VLD photocatalytic property results from a synergistic effect between the narrow band gap and polar 0D [Ce(IO3)8](4-) units, as confirmed using first principles calculations.
