Researchers from School of Chemical Engineering and Technology Provide Details of New Studies and Findings in the Area of Electrochemical Research

June 4, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Electronics Newsweekly -- Research findings on Electrochemical Research are discussed in a new report. According to news reporting originating from Harbin, People's Republic of China, by VerticalNews correspondents, research stated, "Sn-Co-graphene composites have been synthesized through a facile one pot co-precipitation method. The as-prepared composites are investigated by X-ray diffraction, Raman spectroscopy, field emission scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy and elemental analysis."

Our news editors obtained a quote from the research from the School of Chemical Engineering and Technology, "The results indicate that Sn-Co nanoparticles are homogeneously attached to the surface of graphene. The lithium storage capability of the composites is evaluated by cyclic voltammetry and galvanostatic charge-discharge tests. Results show that the composites exhibit high reversible capacity with excellent cyclic stability and rate capability."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "The superior lithium storage capability could be ascribed to the positive synergistic effect of the combination of the buffering effects of cobalt and the excellent conductivity of graphene, which could restrain the volume variation, keep the structure stable, and increase the conductivity of the whole system."
