The electrodeposition of graphene oxide (GO) by covalently linked electroactive monomer, carbazole (Cbz) is first demonstrated herein. This is based on the electropolymerization and electrodeposition of covalently linked Cbz units when a potential is applied. During the electrochemical process, the Cbz groups electropolymerize and carry the GO nanosheets as it electrodeposits on the substrate. Moreover, the GO-Cbz sheets selectively deposit onto the conducting regions of the substrate, which demonstrates its promise for the fabrication of electropatterned graphene-based devices. In addition, GO-Cbz is a promising material for the fabrication of nanocomposite coatings for anticorrosion application. In as little as 1 wt % GO-Cbz loading, a protection efficiency as high as 95.4% was achieved.
