Abstract

The number of hydrogen bonds and detailed information on the interlayer spacing of graphene oxide (GO) confined water molecules were calculated through experiments and molecular dynamics simulations. Experiments play a crucial role in the modeling strategy and verification of the simulation results. The binding of GO and water molecules is essentially controlled by hydrogen bond networks involving functional groups and water molecules confined in the GO layers. With the increase in the water content, the clusters of water molecules are more evident. The water molecules bounding to GO layers are transformed to a free state, making the removal of water molecules from the system difficult at low water contents. The diffuse behaviors of the water molecules are more evident at high water contents. With an increase in the water content, the functional groups are surrounded by fewer water molecules, and the distance between the functional groups and water molecules increases. As a result, the water molecules adsorbed into the GO interlamination will enlarge the interlayer spacing. The interlayer spacing is also affected by the number of GO layers. These results were confirmed by the calculations of number of hydrogen bonds, water state, mean square displacement, radial distribution function, and interlayer spacing of hydrated GO.
