We report the fabrication of one-dimensional TiO 2-graphene nanocomposite by a facile and one-step method of electrospinning. The unique nanostructured composite showed a significant enhancement in the photovoltaic and photocatalytic properties in comparison to TiO 2 as demonstrated in dye-sensitized solar cells and photodegradation of methyl orange. © 2012 American Chemical Society.
