The grafting of graphite oxide (GO) with cyclic ether monomers, directly affords grafting with hyperbranched polymers. The resulting nanocomposites show good solubility in the solvents of polymers, exfoliation of graphene in the polymer matrix and excellent mechanical properties and robustness under bending.
