Abstract :

Graphene oxide-metal oxide mixed nanocomposites have attracted extensive attention in recent days because of the large surface area of graphene moiety which offers sufficient space to accommodate different nano-materials preventing agglomeration of nanocomposites. These composites can improve the unique properties of graphene and induce new properties such as high dye adsorption capacity, extended light absorption range, enhanced charge separation and transportation properties, photocatalytic performance, sensitivity in chemical and biological sensors etc. In this review, we will briefly discuss different synthetic strategies, properties and various applications of graphene oxide based metal oxide nanocomposites.
