Reduced Graphene Oxide Spheres as Active Materials for Lithium Ion Rechargeable Battery Anode

Kornilov Denis Yur'evich, Limited Liability Company «AkKo Lab»


This article show results of research work which focused on a new active materials for lithium ion rechargeable battery anode – reduced graphene oxide spheres, which made by blending of two liquids – hot vacuum oil in graphene oxide water dispersion, with subsequent reduction formed graphene oxide spheres in heated to 200°C vacuum oil. Investigated surface morphology, chemical bond structure and cyclic voltammetry of reduced graphene oxide spheres. Graphene oxide spheres show capacity 185 mA?h/g throughout 50 charge/discharge cycles.
