Abstract

In this communication, we develop a facile one-pot green strategy toward CuO–Cu2O–Cu nanorod-decorated reduced graphene oxide (CuNRs–rGO) composites by hydrothermal heating of the mixed solution of GO and Cu(OAc)2 under basic conditions without the use of extra reducing agents. As-synthesized composites have been successfully applied in photocurrent generation in the visible spectral region.
