It was shown that the structure of multilayer graphene oxide (GrO) synthesized by Tour method depends substantially on the degree of graphitization (g) and on the particle size of initial graphite. The obtained GrO was characterized by Raman and infrared spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction, and elemental analysis. The GrO contains carbonyl, carboxyl, and hydroxyl groups as well as C–O–C fragments. The dependence of the O/C molar ratio of GrO on the degree of graphitization of the parent graphite is nonmonotonic with a maximum at g ≈ 90%.
