Photo reduction of Graphene Oxide with nano-TiO2

In the articles ASAP of ACS Nano, Williams et al., (from Prashant V. Kamat group - he is also the senior editor of Journal of Physical Chemistry) describes a neat way of reducing the o.6 nm thick graphene oxide with photo activated nano TiO2 (2-7 nm). Graphene is becoming very attractive to many and surely this is another example of that. In the picture, GO means graphene oxide and GR means graphene.
