The calcium borate/graphene oxide (CB/GO) nanocomposites have been successfully prepared by a liquid phase-based ultrasonic-assisted stripping method, which were subsequently explored as lubricant additive. The structure and morphology of the as-prepared nanocomposites were characterized by FT-IR, XRD, Raman, TEM, EDS and TGA, revealing that CB nanoparticles were uniformly loaded on GO surfaces. The nanocomposites were highly dispersed into the base oil by sand milling. The tribological properties of CB/GO nanocomposites as lubricating oil additive were investigated using a four-ball machine, and the wear scar surfaces were observed by the 3D Laser Scanning Microscope. The results indicated that CB/GO nanocomposites were of excellent antifriction, antiwear ability and load-carrying capacity.
