A single step, scalable and green strategy has been developed to obtain reduced graphene oxide layers in water dispersion through nanosecond laser pulse irradiation of carbon targets. The layers spontaneously migrate at the water-air interface, forming sheets of several tens of micrometers and show intense ultraviolet photoluminescence. This unique condition offers an intriguing environment where opposing dielectric media meet and can be used in all those processes where molecular interactions such as hydrogen bonding and electrostatic interactions are greatly enhanced.

Abstract

A single step, scalable and green strategy has been developed to obtain reduced graphene oxide layers in water dispersion through nanosecond laser pulse irradiation of carbon targets. The layers spontaneously migrate at the water-air interface, forming sheets of several tens of micrometers and show intense ultraviolet photoluminescence. This unique condition offers an intriguing environment where opposing dielectric media meet and can be used in all those processes where molecular interactions such as hydrogen bonding and electrostatic interactions are greatly enhanced.
