Keywords 2,4,5-Triarylimidazole Graphene oxide Benzil Catalysis Synthesis Introduction Graphene oxide (GO), which can be obtained from graphite by decoration with oxygen functional groups, easily decomposes and may convert to smaller components under heat treatment, a routine condition for ﬂuorination of carbon. We selected GO to make a composite in this work because of its high surface area, nontoxicity, and ability to be functionalized with different chemical groups. The most important feature of GO is that it can be properly prepared on large scale from normal graphite at low cost. GO is similar to benzene and polycyclic aromatic 2 3 hydrocarbons in that it comprises sp and sp carbon atoms [1–3]. GO can be densely decorated with hydroxyl, epoxy, carbonyl, and carboxyl functionalities on the surface and edges of the sheet, providing a variety of opportunities for chemical modiﬁcation and
