Niobium oxalate was employed to obtain BiNbO₄ for the first time and the BiNbO₄ nanorods were successfully synthesized through a hydrothermal method at a low temperature. Oxygen vacancies were introduced into the BiNbO₄ nanorods, lowering the BiNbO₄ bandgap. The O-deficient BiNbO₄ exhibited excellent sonocatalytic performance.
