The scientific and technological potential of graphene's includes the development of light, open 3D hybrid structures with high surface area, tunable pore size and aromatic functionalities. Towards this aim, we describe a scalable and low-cost bottom-up approach that combines self-assembly and Langmuir-Schaefer deposition for the production of fullerene-intercalated graphene oxide hybrids. This method uses graphene oxide (GO) nanosheets as template for the attachment of two types of fullerene derivatives (bromo-fullerenes, C60Br24 and fullerols, C60(OH)24) in a bi-dimensional arrangement, allowing a layer-by-layer growth with control at nanoscale.
