Herein we report a new approach to fabricating nanoscrolls through the self-assembly of graphene oxide (GO) sheets in a dispersion. The assembly process for GO nanosheets was induced by the dropwise addition of an appropriate organic solvent such as N,N-dimethylformamide (DMF) into the aqueous dispersion. The results show that nanoscrolls were gradually formed from the GO sheets by rolling-up in a piece-by-piece manner with the increase of the DMF content. The transmission electron microscopic analysis indicates that for a typical case, the nanoscrolls have an average diameter of 242 ± 102 nm at the central part and the interlayer spacing between adjacent GO layers is 0.58 nm. The scrolls we..
