Abstract

A novel SnO2/graphene oxide (GO) nano-nano composite was prepared by a facile sol–gel process. X-Ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), Raman spectroscopy, and nitrogen adsorption–desorption isotherms measurements confirmed the formation of a SnO2/GO nano-nano composite. The photoreaction of this SnO2/GO nano-nano composite was studied via the photodegradation of rhodamine B (RhB). Interestingly, the degradation mode of RhB in oxygen-saturated solution is photocatalytic reaction, but the degradation mode in argon-saturated solution is not photocatalytic reaction.
