- Poly(dopamine)-treated graphene oxide/poly(vinyl alcohol) (“dG-O/PVA”)
composite films were made and characterized. G-O was modified with poly(dopamine) in
aqueous solution and then chemically reduced to yield poly(dopamine)-treated reduced G-O. A
combination of hydrogen bonding, strong adhesion of poly(dopamine) at the interface of PVA
and G-O sheets, and reinforcement by G-O resulted in increases in tensile modulus, ultimate
tensile strength, and strain-to-failure by 39, 100, and 89%, respectively, at 0.5 wt % dG-O
loading of the PVA. The dG-O serves as a moisture barrier for water-soluble PVA, and the
dG-O/PVA composite films were shown to be effective humidity sensors over the relative
humidity range 40100%.
