We report a simple and effective route to fabricate ultrathin curved In2S3 nanoflakes-functionalized natural cotton cellulose nanofibers by combining electrospinning and hydrothermal growth technique. Cotton cellulose nanofibers(CCNFs) were obtained by electrospinning technique. Curved and interconnected In2S3 nanoflakes with 10-15nm in thickness were successfully grown on the surface of CCNFs via hydrothermal process. The as-prepared CCNFs/In2S3 nanocomposites were characterized by SEM, EDS, XRD and UV-vis spectrophotometry. It was found that In2S3 nanoflakes were uniform morphology with the cubic crystal structure, which band gap is responsed to visible light. The photocatalytic activity indicated that the CCNFs/In2S3 nanocomposites exhibited excellent photocatalytic activity for photodegradation of rhodamine B (RhB) solutions under the irradiation of visible light.
