Abstract

In this study, nanoscale zero-valent iron decorated graphene oxide (NZVI/GO) composite was fabricated through a reduction process in the presence of sodium borohydride (NaBH4) solution. Subsequently, physicochemical properties of the NZVI/GO composites were characterized by scanning electron microscope (SEM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), N2 adsorption/desorption, X-ray diffraction (XRD), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), Fourier transformation infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR) and Raman spectra. Results indicated that Fe species existed in the form of Fe0, which uniformly dispersed on the surface of GO. Furthermore, the performance of NZVI/GO was evaluated by the degradation of tichloroacetic acid (TCAA). TCAA can be rapidly degraded by NZVI/GO. This paper provides a promising strategy to synthesize versatile catalyst which would be potentially applied in sewage treatment to degrade chlorinated organic compounds.
