  • We report a novel single-step hydrothermal synthesis of a photocatalytically stable and magnetically separable g-Fe3O4/RGO nanocomposite in the presence of Averrhoa carambola leaf extract as a natural surfactant for multipurpose water purification application
  • Citations are the number of other articles citing this article, calculated by Crossref and updated daily
  • The Altmetric Attention Score is a quantitative measure of the attention that a research article has received online
  • The Averrhoa carambola leaf extract played a major role in the modification of structural, optical, and electronic properties of the Fe3O4 nanoparticle
  • The higher activity of g-Fe3O4/2RGO was attributed to the in situ loading of RGO, and the synergism developed between RGO and the super magnetic Fe3O4 nanoparticle results in better separation of photoexcited charge carriers which was concluded from photoluminescence and photocurrent measurements
