A novel and efficient reduction of graphene oxide using Ocimum sanctum L. leaf extract as an alternative renewable bio-resource

Abstract

An efficient, rapid, bio-inspired synthesis of reduced graphene oxide (rGO) nanosheets was explored using the green leaves extract of Ocimum sanctum L. (Tulsi leaves). This mild biorenewable reducing agents containing eugenol, ascorbic acid, polyols and also act as stabilizer for the prepared rGO. Characterization of synthesized graphene nanosheets were performed using XPS, TEM, SEM, XRD, FT-IR, Raman and UV-vis spectroscopy. Catalytic applications of prepared rGO was established in the fruitful reduction of α,β-unsaturated aldehyde to corresponding allylic alcohol in aqueous medium. Excellent yield of pure products (92%) in addition with the regioselective reduction was practically observed.
