Article
Full-text available
Petroleum coke is a solid, carbonaceous by-product of oil refining and is normally used for heating or as an anode in aluminum and steel production. These applications contribute to carbon emissions, but here we show that petroleum coke has another potential avenue: as a precursor for graphene production. This path presents an environmentally and e...

Molten-salt etching of Ti3AlC2 MAX phase offers a promising route to produce 2D Ti3C2Tz (MXene) nanosheets without hazardous HF. However, molten-salt etching results in MXene clays that are not water-dispersible, thus preventing further processing. This occurs because molten-salt etching results in a lack of -OH terminal groups rendering the MXene...

Titanium carbide/reduced graphene oxide (Ti3C2Tz/rGO) gels were prepared by a one-step hydrothermal process. The gels show a highly porous structure with a surface area of ∼224 m2 g-1 and average pore diameter of ∼3.6 nm. The content of GO and Ti3C2Tz nanosheets in the reaction precursor was varied to yield different microstructures. The supercapac...

The need for reliable metrics for characterizing graphene nanosheet thickness and quality has increased, particularly as graphene production is scaled beyond kg-levels and utilized in a range of commercial applications. Here, we demonstrate a bulk, rapid testing methodology that distinguishes graphene from graphite based on our recent findings that...

3D Fe3O4/NiO was grafted on to the 2D rGO/h‐BN by electro‐precipitation method. Nitrogen of h‐BN moiety and oxygen functional groups of rGO played the role of negative active site to trap the metallic cations. Electrochemical charge storage mechanism was optimized by controlling the stoichiometry and defect contents of Fe3O4/NiO@rGO/h‐BN. Stoichiom...

The optimization of electrical conductivity, structural flexibility, band gap and charge carrier mobility are the key point to solve the issues in the electrochemical charge storage mechanism of...
Thesis
Full-text available
Energy storage and conversion are the primary needs for modern human civilization. In addition, depletion of fossil fuels, increasing pollution and growing demands of green energies forced the mankind to upgrade the traditional energy storage system. Power density of the traditional energy storage systems like batteries is comparatively low. Althou...
Article
Controlled synthesis of nickel /iron multimetal oxide with different stoichiometry and particle size is carried out by varying the pH of the reaction medium. Electrodeposited samples grown at different pH showed wide range of electrochemical properties like dissimilar current response and potential window due to the formation of different stoichiom...
Article
A band gap of ∼2.1 eV was obtained through the hybridization of reduced graphene oxide (rGO) with insulating hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN). The h-BN/rGO superlattice behaved like n type semiconductor due to the enriched electron density at the conduction band and allowed charge transfer depending on the redox potential of the electrolyte. The band...

The surface electronic property of graphene oxide (GO) was modified through reduction and functionalization. Non-covalent functionalization was found to be superior compared to covalent functionalization due to the formation of a few layer graphene with low defect content and average crystalline length. Because of the restoration of sp2 hybridizati...

The effect of different content of graphene oxide (GO) on the electrical and electrochemical property of h-BN/reduced GO (rGO) hetero-structure is investigated elaborately. The increasing amount of rGO within the h-BN moiety plays fascinating role by reducing the electronic work function while increasing the density of state of the electrode. Furth...

A self-charging supercapacitor is constructed through simple integration of the energy storage and photo exited materials at the photo electrode. The large band gap of NiO/Fe3O4 heterostructure generates photo electron at the photo electrode and store the charges through redox mechanism at the counter electrode. Sulfanilic acid azocromotrop/reduced...
