Series: Physics Research and Technology
BISAC: TEC021000

Graphite oxide is one of the promising carbon based materials in the field of modern science and technology. Graphite oxide is the oxidized form of graphite which can be produced from graphite powder or flakes by using strong oxidizing agent adoption solution chemistry approach. A number of oxygen containing functionalities such as carboxylic, phenolic, carbonyl and epoxide are present in graphite oxide structure. Due to the presence of the oxygen containing functionalities graphite oxide is hydrophilic in nature. This book discusses the many mechanical properties of graphene oxide, its application and how it is synthesized. (Imprint: Nova)
