Graphene ⬠the new frontier electromaterial for rechargeable lithium batteries and supercapacitors

Grant


Scheme


  • Discovery Projects

Abstract


  • Graphene has been emerging as an exciting new material for many functional applications including energy storage and conversion. We propose synthesis of graphene, chemically functionalised graphene, and graphene based composites to enable the fabrication of rechargeable lithium batteries and supercapacitors with high capacity and high efficiency. We will employ novel synthesis, characterization, ab initio calculations, and atomistic simulations to create graphene based nanoarchitectures that optimize electronic, ionic and electrochemical process in electrochemical energy devices. The knowledge and technologies generated will make significant advancements in electrochemical energy technology.
