Holey graphene nanosheets: large-scale rapid preparation and their application toward highly-effective water cleaning

Author affiliations

Abstract

In this communication, we demonstrate the rapid large-scale preparation of holey graphene nanosheets (h-G NSs) via low-temperature thermal treatment of oxidized graphite powder obtained by a modified Brodie method in air. The h-G NSs have nanopores with a high specific surface area and large pore volume. When used as a water cleaning agent, they exhibit excellent absorption performances for oils, solvents and dyes.
