Self-assembly of two-dimensional graphene sheets is an important strategy for producing macroscopic graphene architectures for practical applications, such as thin films and layered paperlike materials. However, construction of graphene self-assembled macrostructures with three-dimensional networks has never been realized. In this paper, we prepared a(More)
Supercapacitors represent an important strategy for electrochemical energy storage, but are usually limited by relatively low energy density. Here we report a three-dimensional holey graphene framework with a hierarchical porous structure as a high-performance binder-free supercapacitor electrode. With large ion-accessible surface area, efficient electron(More)
Flexible graphene films were prepared by the filtration of water-soluble noncovalently functionalized graphene sheets with pyrenebutyrate. The work presented here will not only open a new way for preparing water-soluble graphene dispersions but also provide a general route for fabricating conducting films based on graphene.
Composite films of chemically converted graphene (CCG) and polyaniline nanofibers (PANI-NFs) were prepared by vacuum filtration the mixed dispersions of both components. The composite film has a layered structure, and PANI-NFs are sandwiched between CCG layers. Furthermore, it is mechanically stable and has a high flexibility; thus, it can be bent into(More)
Complexation of cationic 5,10,15,20-tetrakis(1-methyl-4-pyridinio)porphyrin (TMPyP) and negatively charged chemically converted graphene (CCG) sheets was performed by simply mixing the diluted aqueous solutions of both components. During this process, a large bathochromic shift of porphyrin Soret band from 421 to 458 nm was observed, which is attributed to(More)
A facile strategy to Pt3Ni nanocrystals with highly porous features is developed. The integration of a high surface area and rich step/edge atoms endows the nanocrystals with an impressive oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) specific activity and mass activity. These nanocrystals are more stable in ORR and show a small activity change after 6000 potential(More)
Graphene and its functionalized derivatives are unique and versatile building blocks for self-assembly to fabricate graphene-based functional materials with hierarchical microstructures. Here we report a strategy for three-dimensional self-assembly of graphene oxide sheets and DNA to form multifunctional hydrogels. The hydrogels possess high mechanical(More)
Flexible solid-state supercapacitors are of considerable interest as mobile power supply for future flexible electronics. Graphene or carbon nanotubes based thin films have been used to fabricate flexible solid-state supercapacitors with high gravimetric specific capacitances (80-200 F/g), but usually with a rather low overall or areal specific capacitance(More)
Functionalized graphene hydrogels are prepared by a one-step low-temperature reduction process and exhibit ultrahigh specific capacitances and excellent cycling stability in the aqueous electrolyte. Flexible solid-state supercapacitors based on functionalized graphene hydrogels are demonstrated with superior capacitive performances and extraordinary(More)
