Wang, J. and Zhang, H. and Hunt, M. R. C. and Charles, A. and Tang, J. and Bretcanu, O. and Walker, D. and Hassan, K. T. and Sun, Y. and Siller, L. (2017) 'Synthesis and characterisation of reduced graphene oxide/bismuth composite for electrodes in electrochemical Eenergy storage devices.', ChemSusChem., 10 (2). pp. 363-371.
A reduced graphene oxide/bismuth (rGO/Bi) composite was synthesized for the first time using a polyol process at a low reaction temperature and with a short reaction time (60 °C and 3 hours, respectively). The as-prepared sample is structured with 20–50 nm diameter bismuth particles distributed on the rGO sheets. The rGO/Bi composite displays a combination of capacitive and battery-like charge storage, achieving a specific capacity value of 773 C g−1 at a current density of 0.2 A g−1 when charged to 1 V. The material not only has good power density but also shows moderate stability in cycling tests with current densities as high as 5 A g−1. The relatively high abundance and low price of bismuth make this rGO/Bi material a promising candidate for use in electrode materials in future energy storage devices.
