Surface interactions of graphene oxide (GO) and graphene are presented in this review. This work is intended
to complement previous reviews of graphene oxide chemistry as well as detail the newest efforts in this
growing field. GO holds great promise as both a starting material for 2-D materials and as a platform for chemical
reactions, and in both cases potential applications for these materials continue to increase. This work seeks to highlight
reactions that promote attachment of different moieties and that “tune” the surface energies of GO that may
enhance local interactions.
Keywords: Functionalization, graphene, graphene oxide, nanoparticles, transparency, wetting.
