In this report, the degradation of 1-Naphthol was studied under xenon irradiation for 2 h using WO3-rGO nanocomposite as photocatalyst. Raman spectroscopy and scanning electron microscopy demonstrated nanocomposite formation. Gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) technique which was utilized to analyze the degradation products, confirmed the formation of salicylic acid as an intermediate compound.
