Direct synthesis of noble metal/graphene nanocomposites from graphite in water: photo-synthesis

Author affiliations

Abstract

We report on the direct and facile method for noble metal/graphene nano-composites from graphite without reducing agents. In this system, the irradiant white-light instead of the chemical reducing agent exerts the influence on the synthesis of noble metal nanoparticles on graphene. Noble metal salts adsorbed on graphene flakes which were functionalized with ionic surfactants were reduced by irradiation with white light. In particular, noble metal nanoparticles were more evenly distributed on the surface of graphene which was functionalized with SDS than with CTAB.
