    In this work, a facile ionic liquid-mediated method was utilized to fabricate an efficient photocatalyst for environmental remediation. The eco-friendly aspect of the treatment was explored through an in-vivo toxicity bioassay. ZnO particles, prepared by a combined solid state-pyrolysis method, were coated by 1-methyl-3-(oxiran-2ylmethyl)-1H-imidazolium-3-chloride ([MOYI]Cl) ionic liquid. Then, Ag/AgCl species were grown on the surface to make a heterojunction system leading to efficient charge separation and light absorption extension to the visible domain. The products were characterized by XRD, FTIR, SEM, EDX, DRS, BET, and PL analysis. Photocatalytic performance of the nanostructures was...

    Ternary mesoporous nanocomposites of RGO/Fe3O4-ZnO were prepared successfully via hydrothermal technique. Fe3O4-ZnO core/shell nanoparticles were decorated on the surface of reduced graphene oxide platelet to improve charge separation efficiency and magnetic properties. The phase, microstructure and specific surface area of the prepared samples were determined via X-ray diffraction (XRD), field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM), transmission electron microscopy/selected area electron diffraction (TEM/SAED) and Brunauer–Emmett–Teller (BET) techniques. A vibrating sample magnetometer (VSM) was used for recording the magnetization hysteresis curves. The methylene blue (MB)...
