In a recent study published in the journal Fuel, researchers from Spain developed a novel family of reduced graphene ZnO-NiO sorbents produced by less costly and easily reproducible methods.
A new breakthrough in flame retardant composites was made by self-assembling melamine and phytic acid (PA) upon rGO, which was then used to increase the fire resistance of PLA, as written in the journal Polymers.
Researchers from China developed a new anode material for potassium-ion batteries by encapsulating antimony-sulfur nanorods in reduced graphene oxide and nitrogen-doped carbon.
Researchers from China recently fabricated super-elastic graphene aerogels (SGA) using ambient pressure drying, thus enabling the large-scale preparation of high-performance graphene aerogels. The as-prepared SGA showed better overall performance and remarkable oil adsorption compared to graphene aerogels produced by freeze-drying.
In a paper published in the journal Colloid and Interface Science, a group of researchers from China developed a new enhanced polysulfide adsorption material in lithium-sulfur batteries by wrapping reduced graphene oxide on boron nitride nanosheets.
Controlling the configuration of graphene oxide (GO) phases or rather their smaller synthetic analogs, graphene (oxide) quantum dots (GOQDs), is crucial for any of their commonly used applications, as stated in the Scientific Reports Journal.
Solar energy is the focus of significant research and technological development due to its ability to harvest cheap, abundant energy from our sun.
Recently, researchers in the Journal of Energy Chemistry have presented their design for a functional separator which includes an ultra-thin layer of gold (Au) nanoparticles coating on a commercial polyolefin separator to control the lithium dendrite growth and stabilize the graphite anode.
As the world moves toward net zero carbon emissions, there is a need for low-cost green technologies that possess enhanced properties to meet future energy demands. Significant research has been carried out into the use of advanced materials to overcome the issues with green technologies.
