The dual role of Zn–acid medium for one-step rapid synthesis of M@rGO (M = Au, Pt, Pd and Ag) hybrid nanostructures at room temperature

Abstract

We report a new protocol for the synthesis of M@rGO (M = Au, Pt, Pd, Ag and rGO = reduced graphene oxide) hybrid nanostructures at room temperature in Zn–acid medium. The roles of Zn–acid are to reduce the GO by generated hydrogen and the deposition of metal nanoparticles on rGO by galvanic replacement reaction between Zn and Mn+.
