Graphite Oxide Powder

Due to the presence of functional oxygen groups, Graphite oxide can be easily dispersed in organic solvents, water and various matrices. This is a great advantage when combining the material with polymer or ceramic matrices to improve its mechanical and electrical properties.

In terms of electrical conductivity, Graphite oxide acts as an electrical insulator due to the disruption of its sp2 bonding networks. It is important to restore Graphite oxide to restore Graphite hexagonal honeycomb lattice in order to restore electrical conductivity.

The properties of Graphite can be changed by functionalizing Graphite oxide. Chemically modified Graphite produced by this method could be used in different applications. Depending on the intended application, Graphite oxide can be functionalized in different ways.

One way to ensure easy dispersion of chemically modified Graphite in organic solvents is, for example, the use of amines through organic covalent functionalization. This makes the material more suitable for the production of bio-devices and optoelectronics, as well as for drug delivery.

Furthermore, it has been shown that it is possible to link fullerene-functionalized secondary amines and porphyrin-functionalized primary amines to Graphite oxide wafers to improve the non-linear optical performance of the material.

Graphite oxide can potentially be used as an intermediate in the production of single- or low-layer Graphite sheets. To do this, it is necessary to develop an oxidation and reduction process capable of isolating the carbon layers and then separating them without modifying their structure.
