Scholarcy highlights

  • We elucidate the atomic and electronic structure of graphene oxide using annular dark field imaging of single and multilayer sheets and electron energy loss spectroscopy for measuring the fine structure of C and O K-edges in a scanning transmission electron microscope
  • Citations are the number of other articles citing this article, calculated by Crossref and updated daily
  • The Altmetric Attention Score is a quantitative measure of the attention that a research article has received online
  • Partial density of states and electronic plasma excitations are measured for these GO sheets showing unusual π* + σ* excitation at 19 eV. The results of this detailed analysis reveal that the GO is rough with an average surface roughness of 0.6 nm and the structure is predominantly amorphous due to distortions from sp3 C−O bonds
  • Around 40% sp3 bonding was found to be present in these sheets with measured O/C ratio of 1:5
  • These sp2 to sp3 bond modifications due to oxidation are supported by ab initio calculations
  • Such files may be downloaded by article for research use
