One-Pot Synthesis of Reduced Graphene Oxide/Metal (Oxide) Composites

One-Pot Synthesis of Reduced Graphene Oxide/Metal (Oxide) Composites

Graphene, one of the most attractive two-dimensional nanomaterials, has demonstrated a broad range of applications because of its excellent electronic, mechanical, optical, and chemical properties. In this work, a general, environmentally friendly, one-pot method for the fabrication of reduced graphene oxide (RGO)/metal (oxide) (e.g., RGO/Au, RGO/Cu2O, and RGO/Ag) composties was developed using glucose as the reducing agent and the stabilizer. The glucose not only reduced GO effectively to RGO but also reduced the metal precursors to form metal (oxide) nanoparticles on the surface of RGO. Moreover, the RGO/metal (oxide) composites were stabilized by gluconic acid on the surface of RGO. The developed RGO/metal (oxide) composites were characterized using STEM, FE-SEM, EDS, UV–vis absorption spectroscopy, XRD, FT-IR, and Raman spectroscopy. Finally, the developed nanomaterials were successfully applied as an electrode catalyst to simultaneous electrochemical analysis of l-ascorbic acid, dopamine, and uric acid.
