Abstract:


Background: The root extracts of Asparagus racemosus (shatamuli) has been used as benign as reducing agent to reduce graphene oxide (GO) to reduced form of graphene oxide (rGO). The root extract used as a green reducing agent that is non-toxic, eco-friendly and natural therapeutic.

Methods: The formation of rGO was identified using XRD, FTIR, TEM and EDX techniques.

Results: The DLS and Zeta potential data revealed that the hydrodynamic size of these rGO is lower than 200 nm with optimal charge.

Conclusion: These results may be useful for the use of GO as probe in biomedical research where the plant species has known biomedical applications.
