A facile, environmentally benign antisolvent method has been developed to prepare for reduced graphene oxides (RGO)-wrapped ZnO nanocrystals with controlled RGO contents. Because of the high electrical conductivity of RGO, the photogenerated electrons at ZnO mostly transported to RGO, leaving positively charged photoexcited holes in ZnO to result in charge separation. The steady-state photoluminescence, time-resolved photoluminescence spectroscopy and photovoltage decay analysis were employed to investigate charge carrier dynamics and charge transfer behaviors of RGO-ZnO. The influence of RGO content on the charge dynamics and photoconversion efficiency of RGO-ZnO toward dye degradation and water splitting has been realized.
