Abstract Grapes (Vitis vinifera) extract was explored as a "green reducing agent" for the preparation of reduced graphene oxide (RGO) from graphene oxide (GO). The effect of reduction time on physical, chemical and optical properties of the RGO was also investigated. Synthesized RGO samples exhibited excellent activity as an adsorbent for the removal of organic dye. Proposed synthesis is environmental friendly, cost effective and promising for the large scale production of RGO.
