Instantaneous reduction of graphene oxide at room temperature

Author affiliations

Abstract

We report an environment friendly and green approach to obtain few-layer graphene by the almost instantaneous reduction of graphene oxide using Mg ribbons in acidic solution with a hydrogen spillover mechanism. The typical time is 1–5 min, which is much faster than the reduction by other metal catalysts.
