GrapheneCA Releases Reduced Graphene Oxide - Opens Path to Range of Smart Products

March 15, 2019

NEW YORK, March 15, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Nano Graphene Inc., dba GrapheneCA (“GrapheneCA”) announced today that it has established in-house production of reduced graphene oxide (rGO), using its own technology.

“The important addition of rGO truly caters to the needs expressed by GrapheneCA’s customers in the course of the last year and provides a pathway to a wide array of potential high-tech applications, bringing the future that much closer to the present”, declared GrapheneCA’s New York-based Head of Business Development, David Robles, who added: “Along with several other recent company innovations, the introduction of this new line offers an innovative path to an entirely new breed of high-tech carbon materials as well as to high-performance alternatives to conventional products currently on the market.”

Concretely, this allows GrapheneCA to direct its efforts towards a whole new dimension of highly functional smart products—such as inks, sensors, gels, etc., etc.—in a myriad of industries. Graphene oxide is selectively modifiable in its path to a more final product having functional bonding sites. This differentiates rGO from pristine graphene. Graphene, unlike rGO, is highly inert and not compatible with most other elements. The result is an advanced graphene composite package which enables engineers to load materials with exotic materials like never before.

For his part, Dr. Sergey Voskresensky, the company’s Head of Research & Development, explained that “one of our key goals at GrapheneCA is to have a reliable supply of high-quality graphene product for our client companies to capitalize fully on the material’s truly unique physical, chemical and electrical features, in order to keep their edge in the race to meet the ever-increasing demand for the smart products of the future; we now have the R&D facility, the personnel, the production technology and product line to demonstrate how real the promise of graphene is today,” he concluded.

It is noteworthy that GrapheneCA implemented the company’s second New York-based production line at the beginning of the year—clearly demonstrating scalability in the process.


Reduced Graphene Oxide is best characterized as a synthetic alternative to graphene. As its name suggests, it is a product that is made from graphene oxide. The difference between graphene and reduced graphene oxide is the level of surface defects, remaining oxygen functionalities, pathways to optimize the product through a variety of reduction methods. Most of the graphene applications seen today in the news are developed with rGO, due to its wide availability and lack of standard naming. However, high-grade rGO is hard to produce and purify, oftentimes resulting in high costs for final products. Through its proprietary production process, GrapheneCA has succeeded in producing high-quality rGO.


Headquartered in New York, GrapheneCA. a privately owned, commercial scale graphene and graphene-based materials producer and supply company, began proprietary production of graphene in July 2017 and dedicates itself to tackling the challenge of integrating graphene into real-world applications through the use of its own highly effective, scalable and environmentally friendly production process. Its manufacturing process is fully scaled up, low-cost and meets industrial demand. GrapheneCA’s proven technology is being patented in both the USA and China.
