Polystyrene particles “armored” with nanosized graphene oxide sheets have been prepared by aqueous miniemulsion polymerization of styrene, exploiting the amphiphilic properties of graphene oxide in the absence of conventional surfactants. The nanoscale graphene oxide sheets were prepared from graphite nanofibers of diameter ∼100 nm based on a novel procedure, thus effectively ensuring the absence of larger sheets. The overall approach offers a convenient and attractive synthetic route to novel graphene-based polymeric nanostructures.
