The layered transition-metal oxide HNbMoO(6) is demonstrated to exhibit remarkable catalytic performance for the hydrolysis of saccharides such as sucrose, cellobiose, starch, and cellulose, attributable to water tolerance and the facile accessibility of saccharides into the strong acidic interlayer gallery of the solid.
