Undoped K2La2Ti3O10 and Fe3 + doped K2La2Ti3O10 samples were prepared by the sol-gel method and characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), UV-Vis diffuse reflectance spectra (DRS) and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). The effects of Fe3+ doping quantity on the properties and photocatalytic activity for hydrogen evolution were investigated. Results showed that Fe-doped K2La2Ti3O10 showed stronger absorption in the 400-650 nm range and this expanded to the visible light (λ>400 nm). Doping with Fe3+ raised the photocatalytic activity for hydrogen generation and the optimumamount of Fe3+ doping was found to be nFe/nTi=0.04. At this ratio and under visible light the rate of hydrogen evolution of Fe-K2La2Ti3O10 was 1.92 μmol·h-1 and this was 4 times higher than that of undoped K2La2Ti3O10 when 120 mL of reactive liquid (CH3OH(30 mL)+H2O(90 mL)) containing 0.1 g photocatalyst was used.
