The spectral and photochemical properties of graphite oxide (GO) in films have been examined. The photochemical reduction of GO has been studied using optical absorption, IR and Raman spectroscopy, and mass spectroscopy. The molecular model of photoprocesses has been considered, and a domain model of photoreduction has been suggested.
