Zn0.4Cd0.6S/TiO2/Reduced graphene oxide (Zn0.4Cd0.6S/TiO2/RGO) nano-photocatalyst was synthesized by a facile solvothermal method. During the reaction, TiO2 and Zn0.8Cd0.2S nanoparticles were evenly dispersed across the surface of RGO, which enhanced response to visible light. The photocatalytic activity of as-synthesized Zn0.4Cd0.6S/TiO2/RGO nanomaterial was studied by means of degrading methylene blue (MB) through the irradiation of visible light. Compared with other nanomaterials, the
