Glimpses of Sulfurized Graphene Oxide: Critical Review Towards Photocatalytic Response

Karishma Jain, Sushil Kumar Jain and Balram Tripathi


In this manuscript, we are presenting a review regarding the photo-catalytic response of sulfurized graphene oxide (S@GO). GO is derived from graphite, an allotrope of carbon, which has hexagonal crystal structure. Graphite is a soft material and has implementation in making pencils and as lubricant. Synthesis of GO can be achieved either via mechano-chemical or Hummer’s method. The S@GO can be prepared via Staudenmaier, Hummer’s, and Hofmann’s GO, ball milling method, hydrothermal method, and direct annealing method. While photocatalysis process hydroperoxide radical reduces the pollutant to smaller products, and hydroxyl radical oxidizes the pollutant into smaller products. GO photo-catalyzes resazurin to resorufin, as well as it can be reduced to many azo dyes. The hydro peroxide radical and hydroxyl radical degrade the pollutants to simpler pollutants. Particularly research is going further for the degradation of azo dyes from the polluted water bodies. Because of this, GO, due to its good abilities, is reviewed here. In GO, sulfur atoms get attached to the oxygen sites. S@GO has several applications in making of super capacitor, field effect transistor, batteries, gas sensors, electro catalyst, hydrogen storage apart from being photocatalyst.
