One step hydrothermal synthesis of TiO2-reduced graphene oxide sheets

Abstract

We demonstrated an environmentally friendly and efficient route for the preparation of titanium oxide (TiO2) nanoparticles-reduced graphene oxide composite with a one-step hydrothermal method using glucose as the reducing agent. The reducing process was accompanied by generation of TiO2 nanoparticles. The structure and composition of the nanocomposite has been characterized by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, Raman spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction, thermal gravimetric analysis and atomic force microscopy. The TiO2-coated RGO nanocomposite was shown to improve the photocatalytic property of TiO2, which would be promising for practical applications in future nanotechnology.
