Abstract
Abstract As one of the most broadly developed three-dimensional (3D) printing technologies, direct ink writing (DIW) is utilized to process supercapacitors (SCs) and batteries. One notable challenge resides in preparing printable suspensions with superior dispersing ability and stability. Regarding the energy storage applications, graphene oxide (GO) inks have been extensively investigated to match the requirements for the DIW 3D printing technology, where the consecutive reduction process can lead to the targeted reduced graphene oxide (rGO) as an electrically conductive host for SCs and batteries. In this review, we first analyze the scientific challenges and corresponding resolving strategies of the DIW-printed rGO electrodes. Then, we move to specific capacitor examples by discussing the current progress of Non-3D-printed interdigitated rGO-based SCs, DIW-printed interdigitated rGO-based SCs, and DIW-printed rGO-based aerogel SCs. Concerning the battery aspects, modern developments of DIW-printed rGO-based aerogel electrodes for different battery systems, including lithium-ion, lithium/sulfur, lithium/O2, and lithium/CO2 batteries, are summed up. Of note, among these detailed examples, special attention has been paid to the interacting and combining manners between the DIW technique and rGO/electrode materials science. Finally, we prospect several distinct challenges and potential directions in this prosperous domain, which are devised for further exploitations of the DIW-printed rGO-based aerogels in energy storage devices.

Charge carriers are fundamental components of batteries that determine battery chemistry and performance. Non-metallic charge carriers provide an alternative to metallic charge carriers in aqueous batteries, enabling fast kinetics, long cyclic lifetime and low manufacturing costs. Non-metallic charge carriers not only can be inserted into the electrode framework, where they establish covalent–ionic bonds, but can also serve as reversible redox centres for charge transfer, resulting in superior p...

Abstract In this study, we developed an approach to additive manufacturing of three-dimensional (3D)-architected CoCrFeNiMn high-entropy alloys by direct ink writing combined with thermal sintering. The 3D-architected CoCrFeNiMn lattices exhibit the outstanding energy absorption capacity that expands the envelope of existing architected materials. Such a high-energy absorption ability originates from the bend-dominated deformation mode of the 3D-architecture as well as the fully-annealed homogen...

Abstract The potential advantages of using 2D graphene oxide (GO)-based composites stimulating cellular differentiation as well as improve the compressive strength of the scaffolds. The present study investigated the biphasic calcium phosphate (BCp)/polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVp)/Graphene oxide (GO) composite with different GO (w/w) content of 1 wt%, 3 wt%, and 5 wt%. When increasing GO content, the compressive strength of scaffolds increased by 366 ± 37, 387 ± 28, and 558 ± 14 for 1 wt%, 3 wt%, and...
