Graphene oxide (GO), a form of graphene that includes oxygen-containing groups, has been the focus of much talk and speculation lately - most of which centered around its potential use in medical contexts.
However, GO is an interesting material all on its own, with great potential for various other uses and applications. It is studied for use in areas like membranes for audio devices and water filtration, sensors, solar cells, batteries and more.
Here are some of the most recent news regarding GO:
- Graphene oxide on silicon to protect artwork, prevent corrosion of metals, and produce higher efficiency solar cells.
- Graphene oxide composite paper can be used as wrappers to help extend the shelf-life of fruits.
- Graphene oxide foam used in a device that can extract uranium and other heavy metals from tap water.
- UK's G2O Water Technologies secures first commercial contract for the enhancement of water filtration membranes with graphene oxide.
- Graphene oxide quantum dots help check water content in soil
- Graphene-oxide-based ink battery that is able to self-charge within minutes is under development.
- Graphene oxide helps achieve efficient air processed perovskite solar cells via scalable technique.
- GO helps in designing a lithium-ion battery that can be directly charged in sunlight.
- Multiple strands of graphene oxide bound together to create a process that could prove useful in manufacturing complex architectures.
