A simple, low cost and controllable strategy to synthesize visible light active RGO-TiO2 with enhanced PEC ethanol oxidation performance
The works presented here demonstrated a simple, low cost and controllable strategy to prepare TiO2-deposited RGO sheets using 3D porous polyurethane sponge as a template leading to homogeneous deposition of small TiO2 nanoparticles on RGO sheets. The resulting composite showed extended light absorption into visible region and enhanced PEC ethanol oxidation performance (twice and five times more in terms of photocurrent of the polyurethane sponge-free RGO-TiO2 and bare TiO2 respectively).
