Do not pass GO: Graphene oxide (GO) catalyzes the oxidation of various alcohols and alkenes, and the hydration of various alkynes into their respective aldehydes and ketones in good to excellent yields. The reactions proceed under relatively mild conditions and simple filtration was shown to be a convenient and effective method of catalyst recovery.
