Superhydrophobic and superoleophilic hybrid foam of graphene and carbon nanotube for selective removal of oils or organic solvents from the surface of water

Author affiliations

Abstract

A monolithic 3D hybrid of graphene and carbon nanotube was synthesized by two-step chemical vapor deposition. Owing to its superhydrophobic and superoleophilic properties, it can selectively remove oils and organic solvents from water with high absorption capacity and good recyclability.
