Abstract

Liquid-phase processing of graphite and graphite derivatives is one of the most promising methodologies for the mass production of graphene. Here, we present a brief overview of the main developments in this research area over the last few years, together with our own contributions to the field. Particularly, we discuss the preparation of graphenes both in aqueous and organic media by reduction of exfoliated graphite oxide as well as by direct exfoliation of pristine graphite, highlighting some of the obstacles that have been encountered along the way and the approaches proposed to overcome them. Some fundamental aspects of graphenes derived from graphite oxide, specifically their structure and reactivity, are also considered.
