Abstract

Sr2Nb2O7 and Sr2Ta2O7 have a (110) layered perovskite structure and are efficient photolysis catalysts. Aqueous silver and lead cations were photochemically reduced and oxidized, respectively, on the surfaces of Sr2Nb2O7 and Sr2Ta2O7 crystals with a wide range of orientations. Atomic force microscopy has been used to observe the distribution of photochemically reduced and oxidized products and determine the orientation dependence of the reactivity. On surfaces with the same orientation, reaction products frequently had a non-uniform distribution. The reactivity of both compounds proved to be only weakly anisotropic, with the highest relative reactivity for both oxidation and reduction occurring for surfaces oriented between (010), (110), and (011). These low index orientations have structures similar to the ideal {110} and {100} planes in the perovskite structure, respectively. The relationship of the perovskite structure to the reactivity is discussed.
