Abstract

We report the photocatalytic activities of graphene oxide-metal ion hybrid namely rGO–M (rGO is reduced graphene oxide and M = Mn2+, Fe3+, Ni2+, Co2+ and Al3+). The hybrids exhibit photocatalytic behavior to split water and generate hydrogen gas under UV light irradiation at room temperature.

Keywords
