    Abstract

    Fe 2+ cations in FeCl 2 or FeSO 4 were oxidized by graphene oxide, leading to an in situ deposition of Fe 3O 4 nanoparticles onto the self-reduced graphene oxide (rGO) sheets. The resultant Fe 3O 4/rGO sheets were demonstrated to possess interesting magnetic and electrochemical properties attractive for a large variety of potential applications.
