Abstract

We demonstrated a simple, in situ reduction route to the synthesis of two-dimensional graphene oxide/SiO2 (GSCN) hybrid nanostructures consisting of Au nanoparticles (Au NPs) supported on the both sides of GSCN. The as-prepared GSCN/Au NPs hybrid nanomaterials exhibited good catalytic activity for the reduction of 4-nitrophenol. This approach provided a useful platform based on GO hybrid nanomaterials for the fabrication of GSCN/Au NPs hybrid nanomaterials, which could be very useful in catalytic applications.
