Various amounts (3, 5, and 10 wt.%) of graphene were coupled with Fe-doped ZnO nanoparticles by the co-precipitation method. The Fe:ZnO/G nanocomposites structural and vibration modes were studied using X-ray Diffraction (XRD), Raman, and Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectroscopies. The spectra showed that the intensity of graphene increased with its amount. The thermal stability of the nanocomposites was examined by the Differential Thermal/Thermogravimetric Analysis (DTA/TGA). The DTA curves indicated that increasing graphene's loading could increase their thermal stability. Their photocatalytic activities were also checked under UV light irradiation where methyl orange was used as the model of organic pollutant.
