  • Publication number: 20130180842
    Abstract: Graphite oxide can be converted to its reduced form (r-GO) using exposing radiation having a peak wavelength (?max) of less than 400 nm, and even less than 1 nm (X-rays). This conversion method is efficient and can be carried out with various forms of graphite oxide samples, with or without simultaneous application of heat, below atmospheric pressure, or in a reducing environment.
