Interest in graphene, which is a new material, is increasing day by day due to its unique mechanical, electrical, and thermal properties. Graphite oxide (GRO), which is synthesized as a result of a series of chemical processes of graphite, was used as the primary material in the production of graphene film. In this study, firstly, graphene oxide (GO) dispersions with different exfoliation degrees were prepared from de-ionized water (DI-water) and repeatedly washed GRO mixture at different ultrasound times. Then, GO films with the same film thickness were produced by casting of the prepared GO dispersions. GO films with different exfoliation degrees were thermally reduced to graphene at 1100 oC, and the change in reduced graphene film (RGO) properties was investigated. XRD, SEM, and FTIR measurements were made for the characterization of thermally reduced graphene and GO films. While the maximum degree of exfoliation was obtained for GO films in 8 hours of ultrasound, the maximum degree of exfoliation was obtained even in 3 hours of ultrasound duruationby thermal reduction of GO films at 1100 oC.
