Graphite oxide, also commonly known as graphitic oxide or graphitic acid, is a simple compound of carbon, oxygen, and hydrogen. ACS Material prepares graphite oxide via our own proprietary modified Hummers’ method. Hummers’ method graphite oxide is intercalated with either two ethanol or methanol monolayers; the interlayer distance increases upon temperature decrease depending upon the alcohol.

We offer graphite oxide in large pack sizes (i.e. 100 g‚ 500 g‚ 1 kg and up to 10 kg) at the best prices you’ll find online. Our graphite oxide demonstrates good solubility in water‚ ethanol‚ DMF, et al. The dispersion concentration of graphite oxide in water will be greater than 2 mg/ml and it can be easily dispersed in polar solvents with the help of ultrasound. Graphite oxide is a powerful, versatile material valued by researchers searching for advancements in biomaterials, electronics, and solar technology.

Graphite oxide is just one of the many cutting-edge nanomaterials offered by ACS Material. We value innovation, quality, consistency, value, and service; our 100% commitment to these values is why we’re the trusted supplier of advanced nanomaterials by leading research institutions around the world. Call us today for a free quote and exact product specifications for graphite oxide or other graphene products.

Application Fields:

  • Preparation of graphene;
  • Solar energy;
  • Graphene semiconductor chips;
  • Conductive graphene film;
  • Graphene computer memory;

  • Transparent conductive coatings


*The research demonstrates that a common contaminant (some potassium salt residues) in graphite oxide renders the material highly flammable. ACS Material-Graphene oxide was purified many times‚ and potassium salt was removed completely. Therefore the consumer can safely use ACS Material-Graphene oxide.
