    ABSTRACT: This work describes synthesis of graphene sheets with modified surface by sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) surfactant using one-pot solvothermal reaction method. Effect of sodium lauryl sulfate surfactant amount on surface modification level of graphene sheets was investigated. Ether (-S-OR- at 762 cm-1 - 863 cm-1), thiocarbonyl (=C=S at 1050 cm-1- 1176 cm-1) and sulfoxide (S-O, Vs and Vas at 1030 cm-1 - 1450 cm-1) functional groups released from sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS) surfactant during solvothermal reaction and attached on the surface of graphene sheets were detected by (attenuated total reflectance-fast Fourier infrared) ATR-FTIR spectroscopy. (Atomic force microscope) AFM observations revealed apparent surface of graphene sheets modified by surfactant molecules with an average multiple profile of graphene nanosheets ≈ 4.8 nm high. This synthesis way of surface modified graphene sheets can be considered as easy, one-step and cheap method for manufacturing of novel biosurface with graphene, as reinforcement for biopolymer coatings such as ultra-high molecular weight polypropylene (UHMWPE), metallic biomaterials (Ti and Ti alloys) and bioceramics as hydroxyapatite (HA).
