Pickering emulsions stabilized by graphene oxide (GO) have attracted much attention owing to the unique 2-D structure and amphiphilic surface properties of GO. On the other hand, investigations on reduced GO (RGO) to prepare Pickering emulsions are still limited, especially for water-in-oil (W/O) emulsions. Considering growing interests for directing Pickering emulsions to a specific location, it is necessary to embed Pickering emulsions with responsiveness upon external driving forces such as magnetic fields. To that end, we developed magnetically responsive RGO (denoted as "MRGO") and used MRGO to prepare W/O Pickering emulsions. MRGO was synthesized by decorating iron oxide nanoparticles on the surface of RGO and characterized by SEM, EDS, TEM, FT-IR, Raman, XRD and SQUID. MRGO Pickering emulsion (MRGO-PE) was prepared by suspending MRGO sheets in dodecane and mixing with water vigorously. The amount of MRGO added to prepare MRGO-PE is related to the size distribution of the droplets of MRGO-PE and the relationship can be well-described using a mass balance model. The motion of droplets of MRGO-PE under an external magnetic field is demonstrated. We also investigated the adsorptive property of MRGO-PE by evaluating the removal of Nile Red dye from dodecane. The results shows that the dye removal by MRGO-PE is not just achieved by MRGO layer of MRGO-PE but also by water encapsulated by MRGO. Owing to their magnetic property, MRGO-PE can be utilized as a magnetically-controlled carrier which can preserve and transport to specific locations certain compounds.
