Graphene-based materials : synthesis, characterization, properties, and applications
Graphene, a two-dimensional, single-layer sheet of sp2 hybridized carbon atoms, has attracted tremendous attention and research interest, owing to its exceptional physical properties, such as high electronic conductivity, ...
Reduced graphene oxide-templated photochemical synthesis and in situ assembly of Au nanodots to orderly patterned Au nanodot chains
A novel photochemical method for the synthesis of fluorescent Au nanodots (size ≈1.2nm) is proposed (see image). The results clearly demonstrate that reduced graphene oxide sheets modified with functional organic molecules ...
In situ synthesis of metal nanoparticles on single-layer graphene oxide and reduced graphene oxide surfaces
A straightforward one-step chemical method to in situ synthesis of Ag nanoparticles (Ag NPs) on single-layer graphene oxide (GO) and reduced graphene oxide (r-GO) surfaces is proposed. After simply heating the single-layer ...
Chemoselective photodeoxidization of graphene oxide using sterically hindered amines as catalyst : synthesis and applications
We report a green and efficient method for chemoselective deoxidization of graphene oxide via the ultraviolet irradiation catalyzed with 2,2,6,6-tetramethyl-4-piperidinol. While the sp2-hybridized oxygen functional groups ...
Synthesis of Fe3O4 and Pt nanoparticles on reduced graphene oxide and their use as a recyclable catalyst
A bifunctional Fe3O4–Pt/reduced graphene oxide (rGO) composite, i.e. Fe3O4 nanoparticles ([similar]4.8 nm in size) and Pt nanoparticles ([similar]5 nm in size) loaded on a rGO surface, has been synthesized. It shows great ...
