Mesoscale crumpled graphene oxide roses (GO roses) were synthesized by using colloidal graphene oxide (GO) variants as precursors for a hybrid emulsification/rapid evaporation approach. This process produced rose-like, spherical, reduced mesostructures of colloidal graphene oxide, with corrugated surfaces and particle sizes ranging from ~800 nm to 15 μm. The morphology and chemical structure of these produced GO roses was investigated using electron microscopy and spectroscopy techniques. The proposed synthesis route provides control over particle size, morphology and chemical properties of the synthesized GO roses.
