Embodiments of the present disclosure describe a method of preparing a colloidal solution comprising preparing a salted aqueous solvent and dispersing a graphitic material in the salted aqueous solvent. Embodiments of the present disclosure further describe a method of treating a graphitic material comprising agitating a graphitic material in a salted aqueous solvent and removing residual chemical species to obtain a treated graphitic material. Embodiments of the present disclosure also describe a colloidal solution comprising a liquid medium and a treated graphitic material dispersed in the liquid medium sufficient to form a colloidal solution.
