The adsorption capacity of SnO2 nanoparticle has been studied by graphene and nanographene platelets (NGP) additions using co-precipitation method. The crystalline phase, composition, and morphology of the samples are analyzed using X-Ray Diffraction (XRD), Energy Dispersive X-Ray (EDX), Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FT-IR), and Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM). Tetragonal structure of SnO2 is shown for the nanoparticle and its composites. The presence of graphene and NGP is also confirmed. The adsorption capacity of the nanoparticle and its composites are analyzed by observing the degradation of methylene blue (MB) as the organic dye model using UV-Vis Spectroscopy. The result shows that SnO2 composite with graphene achieves higher adsorption capacity of about 20% than the composite with NGP. The fitting of equilibrium adsorption capacity result indicates that the adsorption mechanism of SnO2 composite with graphene tends to follow the Langmuir adsorption-isotherm model.
