Synthesis of hexagonal-symmetry α-iron oxyhydroxide crystals using reduced graphene oxide as a surfactant and their Li storage properties
Microcrystalline α-iron oxyhydroxide/reduced graphene oxide (α-FeOOH/rGO) samples have been successfully synthesized by a facile hydrothermal process. The α-FeOOH/rGO samples are either hexagonal disks with a diameter of ...
Controlled soft-template synthesis of ultrathin C@FeS nanosheets with high-Li-storage performance
We report a facile approach to prepare carbon-coated troilite FeS (C@FeS) nanosheets via surfactant-assisted solution-based synthesis. 1-Dodecanethiol is used as both the sulfur source and the surfactant, which may form ...
Synthesis of CuxS/Cu nanotubes and their lithium storage properties
Novel CuxS/Cu (1 < x <2) nanotubes were prepared by a facile wet chemical approach in polyethylene glycol (PEG). Here, Cu nanowires were presynthesized and then converted to nanotubes via a mass diffusion process. A thin ...
Synergetic approach to achieve enhanced lithium ion storage performance in ternary phased SnO2–Fe2O3/rGO composite nanostructures
We report here a study on the Li ion storage performance of binary phased SnO2/rGO and ternary phased SnO2–Fe2O3/rGO composite nanostructures. The SnO2/rGO and SnO2–Fe2O3/rGO were prepared by a facile wet-chemical approach. ...
Binder-free graphene foams for O2 electrodes of Li-O2 batteries
We report a novel method to prepare bind-free graphene foams as O2 electrodes for Li–O2 batteries. The graphene foams are synthesized by electrochemical leavening of the graphite papers, followed by annealing in inert gas ...
A simple process to prepare nitrogen-modified few-layer graphene for a supercapacitor electrode
We report a simple approach to prepare the nitrogen-modified few-layer graphene (FLG) directly from graphite flakes. With the aid of melamine, graphite flakes can be directly ultrasonicated into FLG in acetone. The subsequent ...
