Stronger Graphene Oxide ‘Paper’ Made with Weaker Units

Counterintuitive discovery is likely applicable to other 2D materials.


Want to make a super strong material from nano-scale building blocks? Start with the highest quality building blocks, right?


Wrong — at least when working with “flakes” of graphene oxide (GO).


A new study from Northwestern University researchers shows that better GO “paper” can be made by mixing strong, solid GO flakes with weak, porous GO flakes.
