  Longitudinal unzipping of multiwall carbon nanotubes is an effective fabrication method for generating graphene oxide nanoribbons. The nanoscale morphology and edge smoothness of unzipped graphene oxide nanoribbons have been investigated utilizing noncontact atomic force microscopy and Raman spectroscopy. First-principles dispersion-corrected density-functional calculations indicate hole-doped behavior on graphene oxide nanoribbons due to oxidative unzipping. Our findings are in good conformity with observed Raman spectroscopic blue shift of the G-band. Graphene nanoribbons provide a promising route for functionalized nanostructures.
