The Synthesis of Graphene as Fast and Considerable Removal of Dye Pollutant from Aqueous Solution

Authors(2) :-K. M. Sarode, D. R. Patil

In the present study, the graphene nanosheets (RGO) were synthesized via improved Hummer’s method followed by chemical reduction in hydrazine hydrate. The reduction of graphene oxide (GO) to graphene by gelatin was confirmed by scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, Raman spectroscopy and UV-Vis absorption spectroscopy. The application of the RGO materials as an adsorbent for the removal of the organic dye, methylene blue (MB) from aqueous solutions was investigated. The RGO exhibited excellent removal capabilities for MB (99 %) due to adsorption through strong π-π stacking and anion-cation interactions as well as the large specific surface area. The results demonstrated that RGO could be applied in treating contaminated natural water.
