Abstract: We report for the first time a novel erythrocyte-like graphene microsphere (ELGMs) which can be produced with high quality and mass production capability via electrospray assisted self-assembly. Through simple electrospray treatment of GO suspension into coagulation bath followed by chemical reduction, large quantity of ELGMs with uniform morphology and size can be obtained with production rate of around 2.4รข mg/h. Compared with other 3D structures, the ELGMs have a very interesting structural characteristic of perfect exterior doughnut shape and interior porous network. Accordingly, the as-prepared porous ELGMs exhibit excellent capability for fast and recyclable removal of oil and toxic organic solvents from water, reaching up to 216 times of its weight in absorption efficiency, which is tens of times higher than that of conventional sorbent materials. It is strongly believed that the novel hierarchical graphene structures and synergy among different techniques will lead to more future advances in graphene applications.
