Synthesis of porous NiO nanocrystals with controllable surface area and their application as supercapacitor electrodes
We report a facile way to grow various porous NiO nanostructures including nanoslices, nanoplates, and nanocolumns, which show a structure-dependence in their specific charge capacitances. The formation of controllable ...
Graphene oxide as a carbon source for controlled growth of carbon nanowires
A simple methodfor the controlled growth of novel reduced graphene oxide/carbon nanowire (rGO/CNW) composites is developed. Without any additional carbon precursor, the graphene oxide itself serves as the only carbon source. ...
The formation of a carbon nanotube–graphene oxide core–shell structure and its possible applications
A stable aqueous dispersion of hydrophobic single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) and amphiphilic graphene oxide (GO) nano-sheets was produced by sonication mixing without assistance of any surfactant. Raman spectroscopy, ...
Controlled synthesis of Sb nanostructures and their conversion to CoSb3 nanoparticle chains for li-ion battery electrodes
Nanostructured Sb was prepared through a simple polyol process. Either Sb nanoparticles (Sb NP) or nanowires (Sb NW) were obtained by adjusting the concentration of surfactant. Electrochemical analyses revealed that the ...
Design of nanostructured hybrid materials based on carbon and metal oxides for Li ion batteries
Development of advanced electrode materials for Li ion battery (LIB) has attracted great attention due to the demand for portable power sources with higher energy density and higher power density. Transition metal oxides ...
Controlled synthesis of manganese oxyhydroxide nanotubes : implications for high-efficiency supercapacitors
Successful attempts have been made to control the synthesis of tubular MnOOH with nanodimensions on high electronic conductivity graphite felt (GF) to be used as a flexible supercapacitor electrode. As a fundamental study, ...
