Graphene-Poly(Methyl Methacrylate) Composites Prepared by Two Methods
Graphene-poly(methyl methacrylate) (GNS-PMMA) composites were prepared by two methods. Graphite oxide nanosheet-poly(methyl methacrylate) (GO-PMMA) composites were prepared of methyl methacrylate monomer and the presence of graphite oxide (GO). Then the GO-PMMA composites were reduced to graphene nanosheet-poly(methyl methacrylate) by using hydrazine hydrate. The obtained composites were characterized by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and Transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The composite exhibited conductivities in the 1.58×10-9-4.21 S/cm range, depending on the amounts of graphite oxide and PMMA.
