Technology research in nanotechnology promises breakthroughs in areas such as materials and manufacturing, nanoelectronics, medicine and healthcare, energy, biotechnology, information technology, and national security. One of the crucial bottlenecks for the application of graphene-based systems in materials science is their mass production. Meeting the requirements, graphene oxide (GO) has been considered widely as a prominent precursor and a starting material for the synthesis of this processable material. This work describes the synthesis of Graphene oxide (GO) by both Hummer’s and Modified Hummer’s method and its characterization by XRD, FT-IR spectroscopy and SEM. The results obtained from the characterization techniques mentioned above is also explained. This GO acts as a base material for the future application of water purification, super capacitors and as a composite in antibacterial activity, solar cells and coatings.
