In this work, we report the synthesis of graphene oxide nanosheets (GO NS) using four different oxidants, namely, chloramine-T (CAT), FeCl3, N-bromosuccinimide (NBS), and KIO3. Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) was used to characterize the functional groups present in the synthesized GO. The microstructure analysis was performed using X-ray diffraction (XRD) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) to investigate the morphology of GO. High-resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM) studies demonstrated the nanostructure and crystalline phases of GO. The antibacterial activity of the prepared GO NS was investigated against pure cultures of Pseudomonas pneumonia and Staphylococcus aureus. The synthesized GO NS with CAT-GO (C-GO) exhibited very good antibacterial activity towards pathogens. View Full-Text
