Recently, Nano Graphene Inc. reported that it has set up the in-house production of reduced graphene oxide (rGO) with its own technology.
The important addition of rGO truly caters to the needs expressed by GrapheneCA’s customers in the course of the last year and provides a pathway to a wide array of potential high-tech applications, bringing the future that much closer to the present. Along with several other recent company innovations, the introduction of this new line offers an innovative path to an entirely new breed of high-tech carbon materials as well as to high-performance alternatives to conventional products currently on the market.

Definitely, this paves the way for GrapheneCA to focus its efforts toward a completely new dimension of highly functional smart products—like sensors, inks, gels, and so on—in many industries. Graphene oxide is selectively changeable in its path to a further final product with functional bonding sites, which distinguishes rGO from pristine graphene. In contrast to rGO, graphene is very inert and incompatible with many other elements, which resulted in an advanced graphene composite package that helps scientists, for the first time, to supply products with exotic materials.
One of our key goals at GrapheneCA is to have a reliable supply of high-quality graphene product for our client companies to capitalize fully on the material’s truly unique physical, chemical and electrical features, in order to keep their edge in the race to meet the ever-increasing demand for the smart products of the future; we now have the R&D facility, the personnel, the production technology and product line to demonstrate how real the promise of graphene is today.

The implementation of GrapheneCA’s second New York-based production line at the beginning of this year is noteworthy—obviously showing the scalability in the process.
About Reduced Graphene Oxide
Reduced graphene oxide, or rGO, is best marked as a synthetic substitute for graphene. Its name implies that it is a product produced from graphene oxide. The difference between graphene and rGO is the level of surface defects, pathways for product optimization by various reduction methods, and remaining oxygen functionalities. Many existing graphene applications are developed using rGO, owing to its broad availability and lack of standard naming. But it is difficult to generate and purify high-grade rGO, generally resulting in expensive final products. GrapheneCA, by means of its proprietary production process, has successfully yielded high-quality rGO.
