RuO2-cocatalyst-loaded ALi2Ti6O 14 (A: 2Na and Sr) with a unique tunneling structure shows photocatalytic activity for water splitting into H2 and O2 in stoichiometric amounts under UV irradiation. The addition of LiOH in the reactant solution, to replenish Li+ defects within the tunneling structure, improved the photocatalytic activities of ALi2Ti 6O14 (A: 2Na and Sr) by approximately 10 and four times, respectively. © 2011 The Chemical Society of Japan.
