dc.description.abstract Herein, Cu 2O spheres were prepared and encapsulated with reduced graphene oxide (rGO). The Cu 2O–rGO–C3N4 composite covered the whole solar spectrum with significant absorption intensity. rGO wrapped Cu 2O loading caused a red shift in the absorption with respect to considering the absorption of bare C3N4. The photoluminescence study confirms that rGO exploited as an electron transport layer at the interface of Cu 2O and C3N4 heterojunction. Utmost, ∼2 fold synergistic effect was achieved with Cu 2O–rGO–C3N4 for the photocatalytic reduction of 4-nitrophenol to 4-aminophenol in comparison with Cu 2O–rGO and C3N4. The Cu 2O–rGO–C3N4 photocatalyst was reused for four times without loss in its activity. eng
