Abstract

In this work, Graphene Oxide (GO) was synthesized by treating graphite powder with KMnO4 and a mixture of concentrated H2SO4 and H3 PO4. The experiment is carried out at room temperature without NaNO3.The effects of reaction parameters such as reaction time, reaction temperature, and amount of KMnO4 on the degree of oxidation of graphite powder to graphene oxide were studied. The results showed that treating graphite powder with KMnO4 at 40oC for 12 h resulted in a better degree of oxidation. The reduction of the synthesized graphene oxide (GO) by phytoextract was investigated using an aqueous peel extract of orange (Citrus sinensis). The prepared GO and phytoextract reduced GO (RGO) were characterized by ultraviolet-visible spectroscopy & Fourier transform infrared analyses to provide a clear indication of the removal of oxygen-containing groups from the graphene and the formation of RGO. The extent of reduction was determined from elemental analysis.
