Through simple ions exchange and hydrothermal reaction, the porous structure of \(\hbox {MnO}_{2}\)-pillared \(\hbox {KTiNbO}_{5}\) composites were synthesized. The fabricated porous structure makes \(\hbox {KTiNbO}_{5}\) as good absorbance property for methylthionine chloride (MB). Furthermore, the as-synthesized porous \(\hbox {KTiNbO}_{5}\) can perform photocatalytic degradation of MB with good effectivity. What’s more, after loading Au nanoparticles into it, a novel catalyst for catalytic hydrogenation of p-nitrophenol was obtained. The possible ‘layer-by-layer quilt expose’ mode of \(\hbox {Au-MnO}_{2}\hbox {-KTiNbO}_{5}\) composites for catalytic hydrogenation of p-nitrophenol was proposed.
