Herein, we report on the successful synthesis of photocatalytic Pb₃(BTC)₂·H₂O polymers via different methods including the surfactant-assisted hydrothermal method, ultrasonic method and reflux method. As the crystal growth is subjected to preparation atmosphere, changes in reaction conditions do not alter the crystal structures of products, but vary their morphology. High ultraviolet-light-driven photocatalytic abilities are attributed to the stable Pb₃(BTC)₂·H₂O, and the effective productions of h⁺ and ˙OH on the catalysts.
