Highly conductive graphene sheets were prepared by coating graphene oxide with polydopamine (PDA) followed by reduction with hydrazine. Polyacrylonitrile/graphene nanocomposites prepared via solution blending exhibit high electrical conductivities at very low graphene loadings owing to the good exfoliation and relatively planar conformation of the PDA-coated graphene in the polymer matrix.
