Graphene nanoplatelets (GNP), one of the graphene derivatives is famous as the most proper candidate for industrial applications. However, current performance of GNPs as reinforcing filler in composites is limited by their agglomeration and physicochemical heterogeneity. Herein, an approach to produce non-covalently functionalized GNPs (F-GNPs) is reported which possesses potential to be extended as the industrial level of mass production. The one-step functionalization process uses melamine, a low-cost chemical, to prevent agglomeration and dispersion in polar solvents. Furthermore, a purification strategy called salting-out process based on differences in the dispersibility of the individual F-GNP flakes is reported to separate F-GNPs. The functionalization and separation process developed in this paper provides a strategy to use GNPs at the industrial level in composite applications.
