Graphene-based nano materials for energy storage and photocatalysis

N

anomaterials have been employed to improve the performance of the energy storage devices (supercapacitor), sensors,

and photocatalysts. Especially, oxides and sulfides of transition metals have been getting attention as they have good

electrochemical performances. However, their performances are not satisfactory. Various materials such as graphene and

carbon nanotubes have studied to enhance the electrochemical properties owing to their large surface area and high electrical

conductivity. Synergistic effects from excellent conductivities of graphene and high electrical properties of metal oxides

or sulfides have improved the overall electrochemical performances tremendously. Doping of graphene with nitrogen or

sulfur, using metal sulfides instead of metal oxides, and using highly porous materials as substrates also contribute towards

performance improvement.
