Nanocrystalline Li4Ti5O12 grown on conducting graphene nanosheets (GNS) with good crystallinity was investigated as an advanced lithium-ion battery anode material for potential large-scale applications. This hybrid anode nanostructure material showed ultrahigh rate capability and good cycling properties at high rates.
To synthesize monodisperse palladium nanoparticles dispersed on reduced graphene oxide (RGO) sheets, we have developed an easy and scalable solvothermal reduction method from an organic solution system. The RGO-supported palladium nanoparticles with a diameter of 3.8 nm are synthesized in N-methyl-2-pyrrolidone (NMP) and in the presence of oleylamine and(More)
This paper reports the synthesis of novel photocatalysts consisting of TiO2 nanoparticles and glass fibres (GF) using a two-step process. The method involves the hydrolysis of titanium tetrachloride in the presence of GF and a following hydrothermal process under alkaline conditions. Various techniques are employed to characterize the morphology, structure(More)
A novel electrode material based on graphene oxide (GO)-polypyrrole (PPy) composites was synthesized by in situ chemical oxidation polymerization. Palladium nanoparticles (NPs) with a diameter of 4.0 nm were loaded on the reduced graphene oxide(RGO)-PPy composites by a microwave-assisted polyol process. Microstructure analysis showed that a layer of coated(More)
Surface free energy and roughness are two predominant factors governing the hydrophilicity/hydrophobicity of materials. This paper reported the surface roughness induced hydrophobicity of graphene foam by incorporating silica nanoparticles onto graphene sheet via a sol-gel method and subsequent modification using silane. Various techniques were employed to(More)
A series of three-dimensional (3-D) TiO2/graphene (TiO2/GR) hybrids with different TiO2 weight ratios were prepared using a self-assembly approach followed by the gaseous reduction in a hydrothermal system. The method was based on the electrostatic attraction between the positively charged titanium glycolate precursor and negatively charged graphene oxide(More)
Single-crystal palladium nanoparticles (NPs) with controllable morphology were synthesized on the surface of reduced graphene oxide (RGO) by a novel procedure, namely reducing palladium acetylacetonate [Pd(acac)2] with the N-methylpyrrolidone (NMP) solvent in the presence of poly(vinylpyrrolidone) (PVP). The resulting Pd nanocrystals (8 nm in diameter) were(More)
This paper reported the preparation of magnetic graphene foam loaded with magnetite (Fe3O4) nanoparticles and its application for the adsorption of oil and organic solvents. The foam with porous and hierarchical structures was derived from graphene oxide film reduced by gaseous reduction in a hydrothermal system. Drastically different morphologies of Fe3O4(More)
