ZnWO4 nanoparticles on reduced graphene oxide (ZnWO4[email protected]) nanocomposites were synthesized using the hydrothermal method. Structural, morphological, optical, and photocatalytic studies of the ZnWO4[email protected] nanocomposites were successfully investigated. Photo-catalytic performances of the ZnWO4[email protected] nanocomposites were examined for the degradation of hazardous methylene blue dye (HMBD) in a neutral medium. ZnWO4[email protected] nanocomposites show superior photo-catalytic performances over pure ZnWO4 nanoparticles. ZnWO4[email protected] nanocomposites degrade ~98% dye while pure ZnWO4 nanoparticles degrade ~53% dye in 120 min. The prepared nanocomposites also show excellent recycled photo-catalytic efficiencies over multiple cycles. View Full-Text
