Abstract

It is demonstrated that oxidative debris can be separated and largely removed during the surfactant assisted phase transfer of graphene oxide from a water/ethanol mixture to dichlorobenzene. The new procedure described provides a facile method to obtain monolayer dispersed graphene sheets in a nonpolar solvent via solvothermal reduction of graphene oxide accompanied by an effective purification process.
