In this study, graphene oxide (GO) nanosheets were synthesized using the improved Hummer’s method and applied to polyamide fabric thorough the simple dip coating method. Then, the graphene oxide was reduced with a chemical reduction process using carob extract as a green reducing agent to give the reduced graphene oxide (RGO) material. The reduction time was studied. The structure, morphology, and thermal behavior of the material was characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), and thermogravimetric analysis (TGA), respectively. The electrical resistivity results clearly revealed that the GO coated polyamide fabric was successfully converted to the RGO coated polyamide fabric with the effective elimination of oxygen containing functional groups.
