Graphene has emerged as one of the most exciting materials in recent years. This interest has now spread to the field of photocatalysis, with the intention of utilizing graphene as a two-dimensional photocatalyst material, and with the potential to harness graphene’s redox properties for opening up new opportunities in next generation photocatalyst systems. The proposed project is aimed at developing new robust-light hybrid materials based on semiconductor nanoparticles-graphene, targeting the improvement of their photocatalytic activity in different supports. This project opens a new opportunity to solve a wide number of environmentally problems as wastewater and air pollutants treatments, or sustainable solar fuel as the photocatalytic splitting of water to obtain hydrogen.
