Abstract

Graphene oxide has many applications such as in electronic devices, as storage energy device, biosensor, biomedical application, water purification, coating technology, as a composite and paper like materials. Hummer's method is one of the most common methods used in synthesizing graphene oxide. Graphene is different in size and structure because of oxidized layered of graphene oxide hence, the expanded interlayer structure of graphene oxide can be easily exfoliated by ultrasonication. We report on the preparation of exfoliated graphene oxide by using sonication method. Ultraviolet-visible spectrometer (UV-Vis) and Fourier-Transform Infrared Spectra Analyzer (FTIR) were used to characterize the exfoliated graphite oxide. Exfoliation of graphite oxide is conducted using water bath sonication. In order to confirm the chemical conformation and structure of the produced graphene oxide, FTIR and UV-Vis spectroscopy were utilized. Both peak of C=O and C-C bond are detected using UV-Vis and the results were confirmed using FTIR. Therefore, from this study, it can be concluded based on FTIR and UV-Vis spectral acquisition that graphene oxide can be produced by exfoliation of graphite oxide using water bath sonication.
