For the first time, solid-state exfoliant agents were used to hinder the re-aggregation of graphene oxide (GO) during melt processing with polyamide 6 (PA6). This technique drastically reduces the time and difficulty related to solvent (removal, disposal, etc.), and avoids water consumption, since in this case 150 mL of water under mild operative conditions are enough to prepare the amount of GOS necessary for the realization of almost 100 grams of PA6- GOS nanocomposites with outstanding ultimate properties.
