What is it about?

Graphene-based materials (GBMs) stand out due to their exceptional characteristics, including the ability to fine-tune channels between their layers, an expansive surface area, and excellent electrical conductivity. These remarkable attributes not only set them apart but also position them as a highly promising and advantageous selection for crafting the electrodes of advanced batteries.

Why is it important?

This is important because lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) dominate the battery market, but they face challenges like limited lithium resources, high costs, and safety concerns with their electrolytes. Zinc-based batteries offer a promising alternative due to their performance, safety, and cost advantages.


Article reviews recent developments in using graphene derivatives and composites in various rechargeable batteries, including LIBs, zinc-air batteries (ZABs), zinc-ion batteries (ZIBs), and zinc-iodine batteries (Zn-I2Bs). It also discusses the challenges and future directions in this research field.
