Fabrication of Graphene–CuO Nanocomposite with Improved Photocatalytic Degradation for Palladium Solution under Solar Light Irradiation
B. Prashanti, T. Damodharam*


A facile synthesis of graphene oxide-copper oxide nanocomposite (GO-CuO) was performed by using wet chemical method of graphene oxide and copper acetate precursors. The nanocomposite was characterized and intercalated with Raman spectroscopy, FE-SEM, TEM, SAED and EDAX. The crystalline nature was studied from P-XRD. Photocatalytic degradation of palladium ion was studied by using UV-VIS spectrophotometer. Significant high-performance photocatalytic activity of GO-CuO nanocomposite was exhibited on palladium ions degradation under solar light.
