    • Abstract

       

      In this paper, the influence of temperature and voltage on direct electrochemical reduction were discussed in detail. Reduced graphene oxide is characterized with X-ray diffraction (XRD), fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT–IR) and field emission scanning electron microscopy (FE–SEM). It is found that the reduction degree of graphene oxide (GO) decreases gradually with the increase of applied temperature. The optimal applied temperature found in our experiment is 20 °C; Meanwhile, as the applied voltage increases from 0.1 to 12.5 V, the reduction degree of graphene oxide increases gradually. However, above 2.5 V, increasing voltage has little effect on the reduction degree of graphene oxide.
