New lig in town: Renewable hybrid electrode based on lignin confined on reduced graphene oxide

ligin-capacitor

A renewable hybrid electrode consisting of lignin nanocrystals confined on reduced graphene oxide (RGO) is developed for energy storage materials.

New graphene material is reinforced with nanotube bars

A square-centimeter sheet of rebar graphene floats in water. The rebars allow the sheet to be transferred from one surface from another without using polymer in an intermediate step. The process was created in the lab of chemist James Tour at Rice University. Image: Tour Group/Rice University.
