Herein, silver nitrate, oxidized multiwall carbon nanotube (o-MWCNT), and graphene oxide (GO) were used to synthesize silver/oxidized multiwall carbon nanotube/reduced graphene oxide (Ag/o-MWCNT/rGO) nanocomposites in aqueous solution by one-step gamma radiation-induced reduction at room temperature. Scanning electron micrograph, transmission electron micrograph, X-ray diffraction spectrogram, Raman spectra, ultraviolet-visible absorption spectrum, and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy confirmed that the structure of Ag/o-MWCNT/rGO nanocomposite prepared under the optimized condition was flower-like, in which GO was reduced to rGO by gamma-irradiation. Nano-silver was dispersed uniformly in the nanocomposite with an average diameter of~102 nm. The introduction of o-MWCNT can increase the interlayer spacing of GO and overcome its restacking, leading to the formation of conductive networks. We decorated the o-MWCNT/rGO with nano-silver, to improve the electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding effectiveness (SE) of nanocomposites. Ag/o-MWCNT/rGO nanocomposite with high EMI SE will be an attractive candidate for EMI shielding purpose.
