Easy Synthesis of High Quality Graphene Oxide (Novel Method)
CHECK LIST: Citric Acid, Sodium Hydroxide, Deionized Water, Magnetic Stirrer, Round Bottom Flask, Beaker and Dropper.
STEP1: Take Citric Acid (5g) in RB Flask.
STEP2: Setup the oil bath and set temperature to 200ºC.
STEP3: Put RB Flask in oil bath, when the temperature reaches 200ºC.
STEP4: Color of Citric acid will change with the time.
STEP5: Add the dark brown colored liquid in 3.5% Sodium Hydroxide Solution (3.5g NaOH in 100ml of deionized water).
RESULTS: Dark brown color indicates the formation of Graphene Oxide. You can go for Raman Spectroscopy for the characterization and explore InstaNANO for raman and other characterization of Graphene Oxide.
