Structure and properties of graphene oxide/cellulose hybrid fibers via divalent metal ions treatment

Cellulose hybrid fibers (CeHFs), hybridized via graphene oxide (GO) and metal ions (Ca2+), are synthesized by dry-jet wet spinning. The synthesized GO–Ca2+-CeHFs exhibit the tensile strength and the breaking elongation of 551 ± 37.5 MPa and 5.9 ± 0.4%, respectively, while the GO/cellulose composite fibers (GO–CeFs) show the tensile strength of 403 ± 76.0 MPa and the elongation of 4.5 ± 0.5%; thus, the GO–Ca2+–CeHFs demonstrate improved mechanical properties over GO–CeFs by 37 and 31% in terms of tensile strength and elongation, respectively. These results are attributed to the metal ions that form a good interfacial interaction between the functional groups of cellulose and GO. In addition, the tensile strength of GO–Ba2+–CeHFs is as high as 580 ± 25 MPa, which is induced by the difference in the ionic radius. Therefore, the high mechanical properties of the synthesized cellulose-based fibers have the potential to be used as sustainable alternative to the synthetic fibers used in the industrial applications.
