Atom transfer radical polymerization (ATRP) is a kind of controllable reactive radical polymerization method
with potential application value. The modifi cation of graphene oxide (GO) by ATRP reaction can eff ectively control various graft polymer molecules Chain length and graft density, giving GO diff erent functionality, such as good solvent dispersibility, environmental sensitive stimulus responsiveness, biocompatibility, and the like. In this paper, ATRP reaction and GO surface non-covalent bonding ATRP polymer molecular chain were directly initiated from GO surface immobilization initiator. The ATRP reaction modified GO was reviewed, and the process conditions and research methods of ATRP modifi cation reaction were summarized, as well as pointed out the functional characteristics and application prospect of GO functionalized composites.
