Surfactant-modified graphene hybrids containing azobenzene groups were for the first time prepared, and the electrochemical performance was investigated. The hybrids were obtained by electrostatic interactions between cationic azobenzene-surfactants and negatively charged graphene oxide in water. The electrostatic interactions, chemical structure and photoresponse of the hybrids were measured by using zeta potential values, fluorescence spectra, FTIR, XPS, XRD, SEM, UV-Vis absorption, AFM and… CONTINUE READING
