Macroporous TaON (mac-TaON) is prepared using polymer sphere templating and controlled ammonolysis. In contrast to typical powder synthesis, which gives the β polymorph, mac-TaON is a mixture of β and γ polymorphs. mac-TaON shows twice the activity for photocatalytic hydrogen generation in comparison to mac-TaON when normalised for surface area. © 2012 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.
