Bi2WO6 quantum dot-intercalated ultrathin montmorillonite has been fabricated via a facile one-pot hydrothermal synthesis method. Intercalation of Bi2WO6 quantum dots in the ultrathin nanostructure greatly enhanced their solar-light-driven photocatalytic performance in contaminant degradation and water oxidation by suppressing the electron–hole recombination process.
