Chemical adsorption of NiO nanostructures on nickel foam-graphene for supercapacitor applications

What is it about?

Few-layer graphene was synthesized on a nickel foam template by chemical vapor deposition. The resulting three-dimensional (3D) graphene was loaded with nickel oxide nanostructures using the successive ionic layer adsorption and reaction technique. The composites were characterized and investigated as electrode material for supercapacitors.

Why is it important?

The results obtained demonstrate that the nickel foam-graphene com- posite could be a promising material for accommodating metal oxide materials for electrochemical applications.
