In Situ Hydrothermal Synthesis of Graphene–CuO Nanocomposites for Lithium Battery Applications
Graphene–CuO nanocomposites were prepared by In Situ hydrothermal method. The properties of the prepared nanocomposites have been studied by XRD, SEM, TEM, TGA, FT-IR, TGA and CV technqiues. The prepared nanocomposites show uniform dispersion of CuO nanoparticles in between the graphene sheets. The interlayer spacing of the graphene sheets has been increased due to the inclusion of CuO nanoparticles as revealed by TEM analysis. The modification in the interlayer spacing and the CuO functionalization in between the layers would be useful in designing high performance lithium ion battery electrodes.
