Photocorrosion{,} that causes rapid deactivation of Cu2O photocatalysts{,} was addressed by incorporating this oxide in a composite with reduced graphene oxide which acts as an electron acceptor to extract photogenerated electrons from Cu2O. Cu2O-rGO composite engineering also allows enhancing significantly photocatalytic activities of Cu2O for H2 generation.
