Abstract

Graphene oxide (GO) is a very attractive material from which graphene of mass quantity could be fabricated. To restore the outstanding properties of graphene, however, complete reduction of GO is necessary, which no one has ever achieved before. We examined annealing of GO which was placed on Si(100) and Pt(111) and observed the surface atomic structure by scanning tunneling microscopy. A honeycomb lattice with long range order appeared for GO on Pt(111), but not for GO on Si(100). Reduction of GO together with restoration of the graphene lattice might be realized by the catalytic property of Pt, which opens a new way to synthesize graphene.
