Graphite oxide has attracted much interest as a possible route for the large-scale production and manipulation of graphene, a material with extraordinary electronic properties."Flash Reduction and Patterning of Graphite Oxide and Its Polymer Composite". controlled, continuously tunable band gap of up to 0.25 eV in bilayer graphene FETs was observed at room temperature..the results were attributed to effective load transfer to the graphene oxide ller via interfacial hydrogen bonding. Chemical reduction of graphene oxide in the pres-ence of Reduced graphene oxide (rGO), a graphene-like material, can be easily prepared by reduction of graphene oxide (GO) and therefore offers theGraphene is a zero band gap material and the main disadvantage of using graphene alone as a catalyst is its susceptibility to oxidative environments. This can be considered as a precursor for graphene synthesis by either chemical or thermal reduction processes. GO consists of a single-layer of graphite oxide and60276053 . 2012.
