Underwater superoleophobic graphene oxide coated meshes for the separation of oil and water

Author affiliations

Abstract

Hydrophilic graphene oxide (GO) nanosheets can be easily coated onto stainless steel meshes. Compared to neat meshes, GO coated meshes become more hydrophilic in air and superoleophobic under water. Taking advantage of this completely opposite wettability, GO coated meshes were used for gravity-driven oil–water separation.
