Scholarcy highlights

  • A series of copper sulfide nanocrystals/graphene nanocomposites with different weight ratios of GR were fabricated via a one-step hydrothermal approach by using dimethylsulfoxide as the source of sulfur and solvent
  • The as-prepared samples were studied by X-ray diffraction, UV–vis diffuse reflectance spectra, transmission scanning electron microscopy and photoluminescence spectra are employed to determine the properties of the samples
  • The results show that the CuS nanocrystals with an average size of 16 nm almost overspread on the GR graphene scaffold
  • This work shows that CuS/GR nanocomposites would be promising in dye wastewater treatment as Fenton-like reagents
  • This work shows that copper sulfide nanocrystals/graphene nanocomposites nanocomposites would be promising in dye wastewater treatment as Fenton-like reagents
