Electromagnetic (EM) wave emissions from wearable or flexible smart display devices can cause product malfunction and have a detrimental effect on human health. Therefore, EM shielding strategies are becoming increasingly necessary. Consequently, herein, we prepared a transparent acrylic polymer-coated/reduced graphene oxide/silver nanowire (Ag NW) (A/RGO/SAW) EM interference (EMI) shielding film via liquid-to-vapor pressure-assisted wet sintering. The film exhibited enhanced Ag NW network formation and antireflection (AR) effects...

Recently, research activities are focused on development of 2D reduced graphene oxide (rGO) based semiconductor nanocomposite materials for boosting up its catalytic applications. In this work, a rarely reported green synthesis approach has been envisioned to synthesize in-situ 2D rGO-ZnO (rGZn) nanocomposites from Apple juice and zinc acetate. Also the composition of the samples has been optimized to achieve high photocatalytic and self-cleaning properties by the formation of reactive oxidation species. The samples are characterized for their microstructural, optical absorption and photoluminescence properties...

We present a detailed study of graphene-coated aluminum thin films for Li-ion battery anode applications. The best electrode ageing behavior is obtained for Al films encapsulated with 4 porous graphene layers. Graphene encapsulation prevents "crushed" Al nanoparticles from detaching from the anode, thus allowing prolonged charge-discharge cycling. Graphene also provides surface conduction paths for electrons as well as diffusion paths for Li atoms. For the first time we report the electrochemical room temperature formation of phases such as Li3Al2 and even Li9Al4, with higher Li content than β-LiAl...

Development of efficient and durable non-Pt catalysts for hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) in acid media is highly desirable. Iron nitride has emerged as a promising catalyst for its cost-effective nature, but the corresponding acidic stability must be promoted. Herein, phosphorus-decorated Fe2 N and reduced graphene oxide (P-Fe2 N/rGO) composite are designed and synthesized. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and X-ray absorption fine structure (XAFS) show that a thin layer amorphous iron phosphide is coated on the surface of Fe2 N nanoparticles, which could be responsible for the well resistance of chemical corrosion in acidic media...

An enzyme-based electrochemical biosensor has been developed with 3D pyrolytic carbon microelectrodes that have been coated with bio-functionalized reduced graphene oxide (RGO). The 3D carbon working electrode was microfabricated using the pyrolysis of photoresist precursor structures, which were subsequently functionalized with graphene oxide and enzymes. Glucose detection was used to compare the sensor performance achieved with the 3D carbon microelectrodes (3DCMEs) to the 2D electrode configuration. The 3DCMEs provided an approximately two-fold higher sensitivity of 23...

Benefiting from the reversible conversion reaction upon delithiation, nanosized SnO2 , with its theoretical capacity of 1494 mA h g-1 , has gained special attention as a promising anode material. Here, we report a self-assembled SnO2 /Sn-reduced graphene oxide (rGO) sandwich nanocomposite developed by organometallic precursor coating and in situ transformation. Ultrafine SnO2 nanoparticles with an average diameter of 5 nm are sandwiched within the rGO/carbonaceous network, which not only greatly alleviates the volume changes upon lithiation and aggregation of SnO2 nanoparticles but also facilitates the charge transfer and reaction kinetics of SnO2 upon lithiation/delithiation...

Given their low cost and eco-friendliness, rechargeable Zn-ion batteries (ZIBs) have received increasing attention as a device with great potential for large-scale energy storage. However, the development of ZIBs with high capacities and long lifespans is challenging because of the dendritic growth of Zn and the absence of suitable cathode materials. Herein, we report a novel rechargeable aqueous Zn-ion battery (AZIB) that consist of Zn coated with reduced graphene oxide as the anode and V3 O7 ·H2 O/rGO composite as the cathode...

Because of its high strength and high toughness, graphene has been widely used in mechanical reinforced composites. In general, the mechanical enhancement depends mainly on the properties of graphene itself and the number of surface chemical functional groups attached on it. In this paper, we report a method to improve the mechanical performance of polymer by using a kind of functionalized reduced graphene oxide (F-RGO), i.e., the F-RGO is prepared by chemical treatment, and then the F-RGO/polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) composite films are obtained by spin coating...

Graphene is impermeable to all molecules and has high chemical stability, which makes it an excellent anticorrosion coating for metals. However, current studies have indicated that galvanic coupling between graphene and a metal actually accelerates corrosion at the interface. Due to the insulating nature of polymers, graphene-polymer composite coatings with a strong interaction between the filler and the polymer matrix are an alternative means of addressing this issue. Nevertheless, such coatings require well-dispersed graphene flakes to lengthen the diffusion paths of gases or liquids, while preventing the formation of a conducting network from graphene to the metal...

Metals across all industries demand anticorrosion surface treatments and drive a continual need for high-performing and low-cost coatings. Here we demonstrate polymer-clay nanocomposite thin films as a new class of transparent conformal barrier coatings for protection in corrosive atmospheres. Films assembled via layer-by-layer deposition, as thin as 90 nm, are shown to reduce copper corrosion rates by >1000× in an aggressive H2 S atmosphere. These multilayer nanobrick wall coatings hold promise as high-performing anticorrosion treatment alternatives to costlier, more toxic, and less scalable thin films, such as graphene, hexavalent chromium, or atomic-layer-deposited metal oxides...

Reduced graphene oxide (rGO) sheet decorated Na3 V2 (PO4 )3 (NVP) microspheres were successfully synthesized by spray-drying method. The NVP microspheres were embedded by rGO sheets, and the surface of the particles were coated by rGO sheets and amorphous carbon. Thus, the carbon conductive network consisted of rGO sheets and amorphous carbon generated in the cathode material. NVP microspheres decorated with different content of rGO (about 0, 4, 8, and 12 wt%) were investigated in this study. The electrochemical performance of NVP exhibited a significant enhancement after rGO introduction...

Li-metal batteries (LiMBs) are experiencing a renaissance; however, achieving scalable production of dendrite-free Li anodes for practical application is still a formidable challenge. Herein, a facile and universal method is developed to directly reduce graphene oxide (GO) using alkali metals (e.g., Li, Na, and K) in moderate conditions. Based on this innovation, a spontaneously reduced graphene coating can be designed and modulated on a Li surface (SR-G-Li). The symmetrical SR-G-Li|SR-G-Li cell can run up to 1000 cycles at a high practical current density of 5 mA cm-2 without a short circuit, demonstrating one of the longest lifespans reported with LiPF6 -based carbonate electrolytes...

In this work, glassy carbon electrode (GCE) surface was modified by drop-coating graphene oxide (GO) and nile blue (NB) to form GO/NB/GCE. By using a one-step coreduction treatment under cyclic voltammetry (CV) scanning, gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) were electrodeposited onto GO/NB/GCE surface, simultaneously generating reduced GO (rGO). AuNPs from the prepared rGO/NB/AuNPs/GCE was combined with 5'-SH-terminated aptamer of dopamine (DA) via Au-S coupling to fabricate aptamer-rGO/NB/AuNPs/GCE system. DA specifically combined with its aptamer modified on rGO/NB/AuNPs/GCE surface...
