  Abstract  
  Graphene’s adhesive and charge delocalization properties are essential for the investigation of polyimide resin noncovalent interactions. Graphene oxide nanoribbons (GONRs) serve as a useful support platform for the self-assembly of polyimide resins and processing of nano-assemblies. The topical surfaces of GONRs adhere to SiO2 substrate and polyimide resins, respectively, due to donor-acceptor interactions. Furthermore, we demonstrate that self-assembled polyimide resins on GONRs are excellent candidates for generation of high-performance composites.
