Sm2MoO6/Ni(OH)2 was successfully immersed in water first, and the sensitizer is Eosin Y and the sacrificial agent is triethanolamine agent for high-efficiency photocatalytic production of H2. When Sm2MoO6 was loaded onto the surface of Ni(OH)2, the photocatalytic activity (2407.48 μmol g−1 h−1) was 2.6 times that of Ni(OH)2 (925.36 μmol g−1 h−1), which was Sm2MoO6 (169.36 μmol g−1 h−1) is 14.2 times. From a series of characterizations, Sm2MoO6 is an effective cocatalyst to improve the separation of photo-generated charges and the efficiency of electron transfer. Large specific surface areas are a primary requirement for high efficiency catalysts, and the catalyst is sufficiently into contact with the sensitizer and the sacrificial agent to soar the photocatalytic activity.
