Surfactant mediated control of aqueous graphene oxide dispersions

In order to distinguish essays and pre-prints from academic theses, we have a separate category. These are often much longer text based documents than a paper.
This thesis focuses on aqueous dispersions of 2-dimensional carbon nanomaterials, surfactants, and synergistic effects between the two. The work provides new, fundamental insight into the behaviour of these materials at interfaces and in dispersion, and offers new methods for their aqueous processing. The findings provide new opportunities for the development of `smart' colloidal materials, and aid in the application of aqueous systems based around GO, rGO and surfactants.
