Did you know that the William Blythe team have the capability to custom manufacture functionalised forms of graphene oxide?
The R&D team at William Blythe has a wealth of experience in property manipulation of their existing range of inorganic speciality chemicals and advanced materials. As our knowledge around graphene oxide expands, the team at William Blythe have started to look at how their standard graphene oxide can be modified to make it more appropriate for a given environment, or more compatible with the matrix it is being used in and how modifications can improve the performance of the graphene oxide in end applications. William Blythe feel this is an important step to take – the number of applications which graphene oxide could prove beneficial in is unprecedented. While a standard material is likely to give improvement in more than one area, it is also likely that the material will need tuning to each of the applications it is being used in.
Recent research has started looking at controlling the oxygen content of the graphene oxide, and controlling the ratio of oxygen functional groups on the surface. Some research has also been carried out on adding additional functionality to the surface of graphene oxide by substituting some of the oxygen groups with alternatives. While this research is in its early stages, William Blythe is confident that this will lead to additional application led product specifications in the future.
Since launching the GOgraphene site, we have received requests for custom synthesis of R&D quantities of functionalised graphene oxide. This has been for various applications and to both new and existing graphene oxide users. If you have a specific form of graphene oxide you would be interested in, please get in touch. We are happy to evaluate all enquiries – we want our graphene oxide to perform the way you need it to in your application and will do our best to ensure this is the case.
