Abstract: We have demonstrated an environmentally friendly and template-free aqueous synthesis of hierarchically assembled 3D ZnO nanoflakes. The ZnO nanoflakes self-assembled to expose highly interconnected networks of well-defined catalytic active {0001} facets. Well dispersed Pt, Ag and Au metal nanoparticles were loaded to form hybrid ZnO nanoflakes for enhanced photocatalytic activity. The enhanced photocatalytic activity may be attributed to the synergetic effects of well-structured ZnO crystal facets, high metal nanoparticles dispersity, enhanced light absorption and charge-transfer kinetics which leads to high photocatalytic degradation. © 2013 The Royal Society of Chemistry.
