Metal molybdates have been attracting the attention of researchers due to their potential application as electrodes in high performance energy storage systems. In this present paper, we are reporting the synthesis of single phase Bi2MoO6/Reduced Graphene Oxide (BMO/RGO) nanocomposite by one pot hydrothermal method. The synthesized BMO/RGO nanocomposite shows single phase orthorhombic crystal structure. Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) analysis revealed good irregular plates like morphology of as-prepared samples with an average particle size of 50 nm. The specific capacities measured for BMO nanoplates and BMO/RGO nanocomposite were 348 mA h g-1 and 750 mA h g-1 capacities at 0.1C with columbic efficiency of 90% and 99% respectively. The results show RGO content had the influence on the electrochemical performance of the electrodes. One-pot synthesis is shown to be a promising method for synthesis of BMO/RGO nanocomposite.
