Reduced Graphene Oxide
We supply Reduced Graphene Oxide (RGO) in powder form, dispersed, or as a coating on substrates.
Research into effective yet inexpensive ways to make derivatives or related materials has attracted tremendous interest. Graphene oxide consists of highly oxidized carbon atoms, made by chemical oxidation of graphite. A material which is inexpensive and abundant. While graphene oxide is an oxidized form of graphene, laced with oxygen-containing groups, by reducing graphene oxide we remove the functional groups and restore the carbon structure to take advantage of graphene’s unique properties. It is conductive not insulating like graphene oxide but is relatively hard to produce.
Our Reduced Graphene oxide is synthesized using a modified Hummers method and reduced by the microwave method.
