Title: Structural, optical investigations of graphene from graphene oxide using green method

Graphene nano sheets (GNS) are synthesized from Graphene Oxide (GO) using commercial sugar as a reducing agent. A green and facile approach is followed to synthesize chemically converted GNS using exfoliated GO as precursor. The merit of this method is that both the reducing agents themselves and the oxidized products are environmentally friendly. The prepared materials are characterized with X-ray diffraction (XRD), UV-Visible absorption spectroscopy, High resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM) and selected area electron diffraction (SAED). The results of XRD, UV-vis analysis provide a clear indication of removal of oxygen-containing groups from GO and the formation of GNS.
