Graphene oxide, also known as graphene oxide, is an oxide made from graphene. Its name is GO and it is brown-yellow. It is available in powder, flake, or solution. Oxidation causes the product to have oxygen-containing functional chains that increase in activity, making it more active than graphene. The properties of the product can be further improved by various reactions using oxygen-containing function groups.
The use of graphene dioxide:
While graphene oxide, an important class of graphene based materials, is oxidized to remove the graphene’s highly-conjugated structure, but it retains special properties and a layered structure. The introduction of oxygen-containing groups not only makes graphene oxide chemically stable, but also provides surface modification active sites and a larger specific surface area for the synthesis of graphene-based/graphene oxide-based materials. The precursor to the production of graphene-based, composite materials is graphene dioxide. It can be functionalized easily and it has excellent control. When compounding with metals and metal oxides or high molecular plasticmers it provides a large surface area for dispersion and prevention of agglomeration.
Grapheneoxid also has exceptional physical, chemical and optical properties. Because of its coexistence with various oxygen-containing groups at the edges and base of graphene sheet framework graphene oxide is able to be controlled. The types and numbers of these oxygen-containing groups can be used to modify its conductivity as well as its band gap. There are many uses for this material. Graphene dioxide is a novel carbon material that has excellent performance. The material features a high surface specific area and many surface functional group. The wide variety of uses for grapheneoxid composite materials (including polymer composites and inorganic compounds materials) has led to the development of a new research field: surface modification.
Graphene oxide is widely used because it has excellent mechanical, electrical, and thermal characteristics.
