An effective and facile method has been developed to reduce graphene oxide (GO) in alkyl amine solution using alkali metal as reducing agent. The alkali metal donates electrons to the GO and the oxygen-containing functional groups were eliminated to produce high-quality reduced graphene oxide (RGO).
