Advanced multifunctional composites of graphene oxide
We contributed in unraveling the chemical evolution of graphene oxide (GO) upon annealing in the attempt to restore the electrical conductivity. Now building on our understanding of this material we engage collaborations with industrial partners and chemical and mechanical engineers to bring graphene into real applications. We have scaled up the synthesis of graphene oxide in aqueous and organic solvent suspensions to enable fabrication of real scale prototypes. We are developing GO membranes for water filtration and gas separation, new composites for pipeliners, and fabricating new epoxy resins with enhanced thermal, mechanical and electrical properties for airspace coatings.
