CdTe-TiO2-graphene nanocomposites were successfully synthesized via a simple and relatively general hydrothermal method. During the hydrothermal environment, GO was reduced to reduced graphene oxide (RGO), accompanying with the anchoring of TiO2nanoparticles on the surface of RGO. In the following process, CdTe quantum dots (QDs) were then in situ grown on the carbon basal planes. The morphologies and structural properties of the as-prepared composites were characterized by X-ray diffraction, Raman spectroscopy, transmission electron microscopy and fluorescent spectroscopy. It is hoped that our current work could pave a way towards the fabrication of QDs-TiO2-RGO hybrid materials. © 2013 Elsevier B.V.
