Abstract: Layer-structured poly(vinyl alcohol)/graphene oxide nanocomposites in the form of films are prepared by simple solution processing. The structure and properties of these nanocomposites are studied using X-ray diffractions, scanning electron microscopy, Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy, differential scanning calorimetry, and thermogravimetric analysis. The results indicate that graphene oxide is dispersed on a molecular scale and aligned in the poly(vinyl alcohol) matrix, and there exists strong interfacial interactions between both components, which are responsible for the significant improvement in the thermal and mechanical properties of the nanocomposites.
