Highly crystalline β-SnWO(4) truncated rhombic dodecahedrons with sharp edges and smooth faces are prepared via a wet-chemical route. The compound exhibits a much higher photocatalytic activity than spherical β-SnWO(4) nanoparticles or conventionally prepared bulk β-SnWO(4) as well as faceted microcrystals of m-BiVO(4) and Ag(3)PO(4).
