Metal-reduced graphene oxide for supercapacitors and alternating current line-filters
MetadataShow full item record
We design a facile approach to investigate the role benzene derivatives play in the capacitance enhancement of graphene-based supercapacitors. The main reason is attributed to the pseudocapacitance of the aromatic molecules rather than the former one. Meanwhile, we find that the para and ortho substituted benzene derivatives contribute much more than the meta substituted ones. In addition, we fabricate an all-solid-state flexible MSC based on metal-reduced GO. The as-fabricated MSC shows high areal capacitance and excellent reliability, which makes it a promising energy storage candidate for wearable electronics. Based on the work of MSC, we achieve a flexible ac line-filter that is not only competitive against commercial product but also suitable for mass production. Meanwhile, we produce a three-dimensional graphene/polydimethylsiloxane composite that gives a thermal resistance as small as 14 mm2K/W, which is comparable to commercial products. What’s more, a convenient transient program that saves much time is developed to measure the thermal resistance.
