Using a first-principles total energy methodology, we investigated the properties of graphene-like carbon mono and bilayers, functionalized with nitrogen and boron atoms. The resulting stable structures were explored in terms of their potential use as nanoscale two-dimensional building blocks for self-assembly of macroscopic structures. We initially considered graphene monolayers functionalized with nitrogen and boron, but none of them was dynamically stable in terms of the respective layer… Expand

Nitrogen-doped graphene for high-performance ultracapacitors and the importance of nitrogen-doped sites at basal planes.
Using nitrogen-doped graphene produced by a simple plasma process, ultracapacitors are developed whose capacitances are about 4 times larger than those of pristine graphene based counterparts without sacrificing other essential and useful properties for ultracAPacitor operations including excellent cycle life, high power capability, and compatibility with flexible substrates.
