Here, we describe an in situ approach for growing polyepoxides from the surfaces of graphene oxide (GO) using a surface-initiated polymerization reaction. The polymerization methodology is facile and general as a broad range of epoxides carrying various functional groups have been successfully polymerized by simply adding GO powders in the epoxide monomers.(More)
Composite films of chemically converted graphene (CCG) and water-soluble polythiophenes (P3TOPS and P3TOPA) were prepared by a LBL method using a suspension of negatively charged CCG-P3TOPS sheets and a solution of positively charged P3TOPA. The composite films show enhanced photoresponse due to photoinduced electron transfer from the polythiophenes to CCG.
High-performance flame-retardant materials are urgently needed to address outstanding issues that pertain to safety. Traditional flame retardants are toxic to the environment and/or lack the physical properties required for use in many contemporary applications. Here, we show that isocyanate-based polyimide (PI) foam, a flammable material, can exhibit(More)
Surface modification of graphene is extremely important for applications. Here, we report a grafting-through method for grafting water-soluble polythiophenes onto reduced graphene oxide (RGO) sheets. As a result of tailoring of the side chains of the polythiophenes, the modified RGO sheets, that is, RGO-g-P3TOPA and RGO-g-P3TOPS, are positively and(More)
The morphology of electrode materials plays an important role in determining the performance of lithium-ion batteries (LIBs). However, studies on determining the most favorable morphology for high-performance LIBs have rarely been reported. In this study, a series of F-doped SnO x (F-SnO2 and F-SnO) materials with various morphologies was synthesized using(More)
