This paper discusses the catalytic activity of ZnO/CuO/nanographene platelets composites under visible light and ultrasound irradiation separately. The ZnO/CuO/nanographene platelets composites were synthesized using a sol-gel method. X-ray diffraction and nitrogen adsorption spectroscopy were employed to investigate the structural and surface area of the catalyst. The catalytic activity results showed that the presence of nanographene platelets in ZnO/CuO nanocomposites improved its efficiency in degrading methylene blue. A scavenger method was also used to understand the role of charged carriers and the active radical involved in the catalytic activity.
