In this article, we report the in-situ hydrothermal fabrication of ZnO/reduced-graphene-oxide nanocomposites with varying graphene oxide concentrations. The catalytic behavior of the nanocomposites was examined using methylene blue as a model pollutant. We demonstrate that the ZnO nanostructural morphology changes from nanoplate-like to nanoparticle-like with increasing graphene oxide concentration. Our nanocomposites are more photocatalytically efficient than pure ZnO, with efficiency increasing with increasing GO concentration.
