ABSTRACT We find that the electronic dispersion in graphite gives rise to double resonant Raman scattering for excitation energies up to 5 eV. As we show, the curious excitation-energy dependence of the graphite $D$ mode is due to this double resonant process resolving a long-standing problem in the literature and invalidating recent attempts to explain this phenomenon. Our calculation for the $D$-mode frequency shift ( $60{\mathrm{cm}}^{\ensuremath{-}1}/\mathrm{eV}$) agrees well with the experimental value.

    ABSTRACT: Two ionic liquids (ILs) gels were prepared by grinding multiwall carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) in two kinds of ILs, and their physical and tribological properties were investigated in detail. Results demonstrate that ILs gels possess high conductivity and excellent tribological performance which mainly depends on the synergy of ILs and MWCNTs with their respective outstanding characteristics. ILs modified MWCNTs through van der Waals and π–π stacting interactions significantly improve the dispersibility and compatibility with lubricants, which greatly enhances the conductivity and tribological properties of the lubricants. The friction mechanism for the ILs gels is attributed to the synergetic lubrication of ILs and MWCNTs.

    ABSTRACT: Insulator–conductor composites are touted as excellent materials for charge storage capacitor applications. Cupric oxide (CuO) decked few-layered graphene (FLG) can be one such composite. Understanding the dielectric behaviour of CuO–graphene system, which is anticipated to be intricate, is definitely an attention-grabbing one. Here, CuO decked FLG composite is synthesized using molecular level mixing. Samples with different amounts of FLG (low and high amount FLG containing samples are named as CuO-0.1G and CuO-0.2G, respectively) are prepared. At 1 kHz, dielectric permittivity (ε1) values of CuO-0.1G (ε1 = 318) and CuO-0.2G (ε1 = 667) are ∼1.1 and ∼2.3 times greater, respectively than that of CuO (ε1 = 289). Increase in ε1 is ascribed to the formation of continuous conductive pathway between CuO decked FLG sheets. AC conductivity (σ) of CuO-0.1G and CuO-0.2G samples is found to increase with applied frequency and follows Jonscher’s power law. Experimental data pertaining to AC conductivity could be easily fitted to quantum mechanical tunnelling model. The fitting results suggest electron hopping mechanism as the cause for enhanced AC conductivity. This work gives a great motivation to develop composite materials (with conducting and insulating constituents) whose dielectric behaviour can be controlled by mechanisms occurring at atomistic scale.

    ABSTRACT: Three Li4Ti5O12/C composites (LTO/C) with diverse carbon morphologies and structures were synthesized via a simple solid-state method, along with carbon coating performed at different periods. The morphologies and structures of the coated carbon were characterized by means of electron microscopy and Raman spectroscopy. Effects of varied coated carbon on lithium storage performance, especially high rate capability of LTO/C composites were investigated. The results revealed that the porous and homogeneous carbon layer was more facile to achieve the balance between the good electron conduction and Li ion diffusion than the island-like carbon layer and the compact one, and thus the corresponding LTO/C composite exhibited more excellent electrochemical performance. At low current rate of 0.2 C, its reversible capacity was as high as 171 mAh g(-1). At 5 C, the high capacity of 150 mAh g-1 had no loss after 300 cycles. Especially at the high charge/discharge rate of 30 C, the reversible capacity still kept a high level of 82 mAh g(-1).
