Microwave-assisted synthesis of BiOBr/graphene nanocomposites and their enhanced photocatalytic activity

Author affiliations

Abstract

BiOBr/graphene nanocomposites were synthesized by a green single-step microwave strategy and characterized by X-ray diffraction, field-emission scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, Raman spectroscopy, and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. The photocatalytic activity of the as-prepared BiOBr nanoplates and BiOBr/graphene nanocomposites for the photodegeneration of organic dyes in aqueous solution under visible light irradiation was investigated. The results show that BiOBr/graphene nanocomposites have a higher photocatalytic activity than bare BiOBr nanoplates.
