Abstract

Single-layer graphene oxides (SLGOs) undergo morphologicalchanges depending on the pH of the system and may account forrestricted chemical reactivity. Herein, SLGO may also capturenanoparticles through layering and enveloping when the pH ischanged, demonstrating potential usefulness in drug delivery orwaste material capture.
