Abstract:


Background: The root extracts of Asparagus racemosus (shatamuli) have been used as a benign reducing agent to reduce graphene oxide (GO) and reduced graphene oxide (rGO). The root extract, that is used as a green, reducing agent, is non-toxic, eco-friendly, and naturally 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 this rGO is lower than 200 nm with optimal charge.

Conclusion: These results may be useful for the use of GO as a probe in biomedical research.

Keywords:
