US2014-0087192A1: Conducting Polymer/Graphene-Based Material Composites, And Methods For Preparing The Composites (2017)
Abstract: A composite comprising a conducting polymer and a graphene-based material is provided. The composite includes a graphene-based material doped with nitrogen or having a nitrogen-containing species grafted thereon, and a conducting polymer arranged on the graphene-based material. Methods of preparing the composite, and electrodes formed from the composite are also provided.
