Single-layer graphene oxides (SLGOs) undergo morphological changes depending on the pH of the system and may account for restricted chemical reactivity. Herein, SLGO may also capture nanoparticles through layering and enveloping when the pH is changed, demonstrating potential usefulness in drug delivery or waste material capture.
