Non-oxidative graphene (nOG) synthesized from natural graphite powder was modified with magnetite (Fe3O4) for removal of Cr(VI) and dyes in aqueous solution. The adsorption behavior of Cr(VI) on Fe3O4/nOG (M-nOG) was systematically investigated, and the simultaneous adsorption of Cr(VI) and dyes such as methylene blue (MB) and rhodamine B (RhB) was evaluated. Adsorption kinetic and isotherm of Cr(VI) were fitted well with pseudo-second-order model and Sips model, respectively. For the binary system, Cr(VI) removal was not affected with increasing the dye concentration, whereas the adsorption capacity of both MB and RhB was enhanced with increasing the concentrations of Cr(VI).
