Ecofriendly reduction of graphene oxide (GO) using extremophilic bacterial species yields highly conductive large-area graphene with excellent biocompatibility. The process involves two halophilic bacterial strains that reduce GO under both anaerobic and aerobic conditions. A one-step cost effective, non-toxic bulk reduction of GO for green electronics and bioscience applications is reported.
