We present an all-solid-state flexible and stretchable pseudocapacitor composed of dodecylbenzenesulfonate-doped polypyrrole (PPy(DBS))-coated vertically aligned carbon nanotubes (VACNTs) partially embedded in a polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) substrate. VACNTs are grown via atmospheric-pressure chemical vapor deposition on a Si/SiO2 substrate and transferred onto PDMS. Then, the PPy(DBS) film is coated with a surface charge of 300 mC cm−2 on individual carbon nanotubes (CNTs) via electropolymerizat...

Abstract This paper presents a mesh-type absorbent made of a carbon nanotube (CNT)-embedded polypyrrole dodecylbenzenesulfonate (PPy(DBS)) surface for controlled absorption and release of oils and regeneration of polymer surfaces toward continuous oil/water separation. The mesh absorbs dichloromethane (DCM) under oxidation in aqueous environment and releases them under reduction via in situ switching of underwater wettability. CNTs were grown out of stainless steel surfaces and embedded into the...

Abstract This article provides a comprehensive review of the latest advances in the preparation, properties and applications of graphene oxide (GO) and GO-based materials. The review shows that GO has been used to create a range of different composite structures and catalyse numerous reactions: GO could be incorporated as a composite filler through different fabrication techniques including melt blending for thermoplastics to enhance desired properties, such as fusing GO with polyethylene tereph...

We present flexible and stretchable supercapacitors composed of interwoven carbon nanotubes (CNTs) embedded in polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) substrates. CNTs are grown using atmospheric-pressure chemical vapor deposition (APCVD) on a Si/SiO2 substrate and then partially embedded into PDMS. This unique process permits a rapid and facile integration of the interwoven CNT–PDMS structure as a flexible and stretchable supercapacitor electrode with a high level of integrity under various strains. The el...

We show that a high energy density can be achieved in a practical manner with freestanding electrodes without using conductive carbon, binders, and current collectors. We made and used a folded graphene composite electrode designed for a high areal capacity anode. The traditional thick graphene composite electrode, such as made by filtering graphene oxide to create a thin film and reducing it such as through chemical or thermal methods, has sluggish reaction kinetics. Instead, we have made and t...

Tremendous efforts have been dedicated into the development of high-performance energy storage devices with nanoscale design and hybrid approaches. The boundary between the electrochemical capacitors and batteries becomes less distinctive. The same material may display capacitive or battery-like behavior depending on the electrode design and the charge storage guest ions. Therefore, the underlying mechanisms and the electrochemical processes occurring upon charge storage may be confusing for res...

Stretchable electrodes are a critical component for flexible electronics such as displays, energy devices, and wearable sensors. Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and graphene have been considered for flexible electrode applications, due to their mechanical strength, high carrier mobility, and excellent thermal conductivity. Vertically aligned carbon nanotubes (VACNTs) provide the possibility to serve as interconnects to graphene sheets as stretchable electrodes that could maintain high electrical conduct...

Solid-state refrigeration offers potential advantages over traditional cooling systems, but few devices offer high specific cooling power with a high coefficient of performance (COP) and the ability to be applied directly to surfaces. We developed a cooling device with a high intrinsic thermodynamic efficiency using a flexible electrocaloric (EC) polymer film and an electrostatic actuation mechanism. Reversible electrostatic forces reduce parasitic power consumption and allow efficient heat tran...

Abstract null null A significant bottleneck that hampers the adoption of many current technologies and wearable devices is power supply requirements. The quest to innovate portable self-powered systems has shed light on miniaturized energy harvesting devices called nanogenerators (NGs) that apply a wide variety of nanomaterials to achieve feasibility, flexibility, and enhanced electrical output. This systematic review provides a nearly complete list of all the NG devices present in the literatur...

Oxygen evolution reaction (OER) is expected to be of great importance for the future energy conversion and storage in form of hydrogen by water electrolysis. Besides the traditional noble-metal or transition metal oxide-based catalysts, carbonaceous electrocatalysts are of great interest due to their huge structural and compositional variety and unrestricted abundance. This review provides a summary of recent advances in the field of carbon-based OER catalysts ranging from "pure" or unintentiona...
The concept of this paper was to explore the comparative advantage of polymer composite in the formation of a critical part of electrodes, separators, and electrolytes. These parts largely determine the overall performance of new evolving supercapacitors (SC) as against many other existing storage devices. Polymer materials are reputed for their low weight and life-cycle flexibility which makes supercapacitors unique in their functions. In this paper, application and classification of SCs were u...

Abstract Despite the attractive features of existing supercapacitors (SCs), SC devices still exhibit low mass loading, limited working voltage, low specific capacitance, short cycle life, and unsatisfactory energy density. In this study, we introduced novel self-suspended polyaniline (S-PANI) into a combination of manganese dioxide (MnO2) and reduced graphene oxide (RGO) to propose an efficient SC electrode for energy storage applications. The unique addition of lightweight, highly conductive, e...

Abstract This work investigated the effect of Potassium Permanganate (KMnO4) on graphene oxide (GO) properties, especially on electrical properties. The GO thin films were deposited on a glass substrate using drop casting technique and were analysed by using various type of spectroscopy (e.g. Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), Ultra- Violet Visible (UV-VIS), Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR), X-Ray Diffraction (XRD), optical band gap, Raman Spectroscopy). Furthermore, the electrical experiments...

Abstract We have explored facile synthetic approach to fabricate free-standing hybrid mat based on nanostructured polyaniline (PANi) and carbon nanofibre (CNF) mat for binder-free supercapacitor electrode material by taking the merit of pseduocapacitance of PANi nanofibres and double layer capacitance of CNFs. The results of different spectroscopic analyses indicate successful growth of PANi on CNF surfaces with non-bonding interactions between them. The PANi/CNF hybrid with a core-shell structu...

Abstract We propose a facile route to fabricate carbon nanotube-activated carbon composite electrodes for supercapacitor applications. The crux of our approach lies in the use of softened pitch that becomes viscous at 110 °C and combines effortlessly with multi-walled carbon nanotubes, allowing a one-pot chemical activation at 900 °C. Meso/macroscale pores created by a bundle of the nanotubes can be infiltrated effectively by the softened pitch, increasing the apparent tap density with microporo...

Abstract Graphene is considered as one of the most promising anode materials for alkali (Li, Na and K) ion batteries in term of large specific surface area and high conductivity, whereas, low initial Coulombic efficiency, poor capacity and fast capacity decay severely block the commercialization process. Here, we designed reduced graphene oxide with three-dimensional interconnected hollow channel architecture (3D IH-rGO) via electrospinning/electrospray and carbonization techniques. Benefiting f...
