Article
The subbituminous type of coal is considered low-grade and unsuitable for power generation due to its low calorific value and high impurity content. As a result, this type of coal does not have any economic value and so is mostly lying unutilized. In this work, we have explored a simple and easily scalable approach to converting this low-grade subb...

Most lithium-ion capacitor (LIC) devices include graphite or non-porous hard carbon as negative electrode often failing when demanding high energy at high power densities. Herein, we introduce a new LIC formed by the assembly of polymer derived hollow carbon spheres (HCS) and a superactivated carbon (AC), as negative and positive electrodes, respec...

Direct reduction of graphene oxide has been regarded as the economically viable route for large-scale synthesis of graphene. However, the currently known methods suffer from either poor reduction efficiency or involve multi-step and energy-intensive reduction processes. Here, we demonstrate a remarkably fast, single step as well as highly efficient...
