This work suggests an effective approach to fabricate reduced graphene oxide-based carbon (RGO/C) composite films. The carbonization of graphene oxide-reinforced polyimide (GO/PI) composite films was investigated by thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). The crystalline structures and carbonized mechanism of the RGO/C composite films were investigated in detail by X-ray diffraction (XRD) and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR). Furthermore, the carbonization yields were improved due to the catalytic effects of RGO. These RGO/C composite films exhibited obvious structural orientations by SEM investigation of their cross sections.
