Abstract
Graphene like-TiO2 nanocomposites (rGO-TiO2) are prepared via hydrothermal route by following different synthetic protocols. The as-prepared nanostructured materials exhibit higher photocatalytic activity than bare TiO2 in the treatment of synthetic produced water containing high salinity levels and different compositions of recalcitrant dissolved organic matter. The effect of the preparation method on the physico-chemical properties is assessed by performing a wide characterization combining di...
