Every one knows about Graphene - a two dimensional sheet of carbon that holds lot of promise in a wide variety of applications. Graphene synthesis is possible using a wide number of ways. One important way is to reduce Graphene oxide and get "Reduced Graphene Oxide" / "Graphene Sheets". This is where i wish to place before all of you an interesting proposal. i request all of you for your comments.

i learned from a research paper that ammonia and zinc powder combination can reduce graphene oxide and lead to production of graphene. Human Urine has plenty of urea which gets converted to ammonia by bacteria. So, mix zinc powder and human urine to get "Zinc Ammonia solution due to bacterial action" which will turn help in reducing graphene oxide and get  "Graphene Sheets". 


of course if urine has sugars it can reduce Graphene oxide but it will be time consuming. 

i don't have access to certain facilities to check this. Nevertheless i am placing it on the web for all of you to look at it and comment on it.

If anyone of  you is willing to do this experiment, please give credit to my idea......

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at editor@nanopaprika.eu
