Summary of "Efficient Fractionation of Graphene Oxide Based on Reversible Adsorption of Polymer and Size-Dependent Sodium Ion Storage."

Graphene oxide (GO) is not only a uniqe class of two-dimensional materials but also an important precursor for scalable preparation of graphene. The efficient size fractionation of graphene oxide is of great importance to the fundamental and applied studies of chemically modified graphene, however, remains a great challenge. Herein we report an efficient and scalable fractionation method of GO employing reversible adsorption/desorption of temperatue-responsive poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) on GO to amplify their mass difference and significantly improve the fractionation efficiency. Furthermore, size-dependent sodium ion storage of the resulting fractionated reduced GO is revealed for the first time with high sodium-storage performance achieved for the smallest reduced GO due to its largest d-spacing and most defect sites. This work provides valuable insights to the size fractionation and size-dependent electrochemical performance of graphene, which can be potentially extended to other two-dimensional materials.

Strongly cationic polymer that binds to certain proteins; used as a marker in immunology, to precipitate and purify enzymes and lipids. Synonyms: aziridine polymer; Epamine; Epomine; ethylenimine polymer; Montrek; PEI; Polymin(e).

Synthetic organosiloxane gels that are formed from synthetic polymers of silicone oxide with organic sidechains (polydimethylsiloxane) by lengthening the polymer chains. Unlike silicone elastomers, they are not treated with amorphous silica. They are used as fillers in breast implants.

A free radical gas produced endogenously by a variety of mammalian cells, synthesized from ARGININE by NITRIC OXIDE SYNTHASE. Nitric oxide is one of the ENDOTHELIUM-DEPENDENT RELAXING FACTORS released by the vascular endothelium and mediates VASODILATION. It also inhibits platelet aggregation, induces disaggregation of aggregated platelets, and inhibits platelet adhesion to the vascular endothelium. Nitric oxide activates cytosolic GUANYLATE CYCLASE and thus elevates intracellular levels of CYCLIC GMP.
