Fast and Easy Large Scale Synthesis of Graphene Oxide

Technology Overview

Graphene oxide (GO) is a key product segment in the graphene market which will account for around 40% of the total industry revenue share in 2024. However, the high cost of GO is limiting the application.

The current methods of GO production has few limitations, such as long oxidation time, formation of defects (poor quality), large volume of acid usage, toxic gas evolution, etc. The high cost of GO is mainly associated with the complex and tedious oxidation processes as well as the huge volume of chemicals used. This technology offers a simple, fast and eco-friendly method of producing GO.

The technology owner is currently looking for industry partners to licence the technology and to further scale-up the GO for commercial markets.
