Energy deficiency is currently an emergency issue in society. Hydrogen has been considered an environment-friendly energy carrier with high energy capacity. Hence, in this study a simple and effective method was used to synthesize Cerium-oxide Nanowires doped with Reduced Graphene Oxide (CNW-RGO) via the hydrothermal reaction as hydrogen evolving catalysts. Results showed that the composite photocatalyst demonstrated obvious absorption in the visible-light region and the highest hydrogen production was 7.14 mmol g−1 with CNW-RGO of 4 wt.% RGO. So, the as-prepared CNW-RGO was favorable for charge separation and light harvesting. In addition, this study is helpful not only for photocatalytic water splitting of hydrogen production but also for practical application during waste to energy conversion which provides new insights.
