Abstract Although adsorption is regarded as a facile and efficient method to remove heavy metals from polluted water, the disposal of the spent adsorbents remains a great challenge. Here, an “adsorbent-to-photocatalyst” conversion strategy is reported. One-unit-cell calcium silicate hydrate (CSH) nanosheets (∼2.8 nm) are used as an ideal adsorbent, and four typical heavy metals including Cu2+, Zn2+, Co2+, and Cd2+ ions are selected for studies. CSH nanosheets show superiority in the ultrahigh sp...
