Graphene on vanadium oxide ‘ribbons’ shows promise for lithium-ion battery cathodes

By Eileen De Guire / March 26, 2013

Graphene-coated ribbons of vanadium oxide, seen in a scanning electron microscope image, show promise as electrode for lithium-ion batteries, according to researchers at Rice University. (Credit: Ajayan Group/Rice University) Last week I told you about some fascinating work coming out of the University of Stuttgart on extremely flexible vanadium pentoxide paper like material. Researchers are…

Role of hydrogen bonds in extremely flexible vanadium oxide nanofiber paper

By Eileen De Guire / March 19, 2013

Hydrogen bonding contributes to the extreme flexibility of vanadium pentoxide paper made from high aspect ratio nanofibers. Credit: Burghard; Wiley. Last fall I wrote about a small, highly focused conference in Germany I attended called, “Generation of Inorganic Functional Materials Implementation of Biomineralization Principles.” The idea behind biomineralization is to adapt natural processes to synthesize…
