Findings from Center for Nanotechnology Has Provided New Data on Chemical Engineering (One-Pot Spray-Dried Graphene Sheets-Encapsulated Nano-Li4Ti5O12 Microspheres for a Hybrid BatCap System)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Journal of Engineering -- Investigators publish new report on Chemical Engineering. According to news reporting from Shanghai, People's Republic of China, by VerticalNews journalists, research stated, "In this study, we report a facile strategy for constructing three-dimensional (3D) crumpled graphene sheets-wrapped nano-Li4Ti5O12 (LTO@GS) composites using a one-pot spray-drying assisted solid-phase reaction method with anatase TiO2 as a starting material. The proportion of graphene oxide (GO) in the LTO@GS composite greatly influences the phase formation and electrochemical performance of the composite."

The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research from Center for Nanotechnology, "As an anode material for a nonaqueous, hybrid battery-capacitor (Bat Cap) system, the LTO@GS composite exhibits good high-rate capability and long cycle life. The specific capacitance still retains 90% of the initial value after 20 000 cycles, and the Coulombic efficiencies are close to 100%."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "This can reasonably be attributed to the interesting crumpled graphene-encapsulated structure and extraordinary synergistic effects between the two components."
