Fabrication of Structured Polymer and Nanomaterials for Advanced Energy Storage and Conversion Excerpt :

Since the first and second industrial revolutions, the development of energy conversion and storage technologies have brought great progress and convenience to modern society. Most of the innovations and technologies focus on the carbon-based fuels such as coal, petroleum and natural gas, which are not only limited resources and but also harmful for the environment. Meanwhile, the power demand from industries and societies has been growing rapidly in the recent years. In this consideration, a number of research efforts have been intensively applied to pursue alternative clean energy resources and new energy storage and conversion systems, such as supercapacitors, lithium-ion batteries, metal-oxygen, water electrolysis and so on. In this dissertation, we report the synthesis and preparation of a series of polymer and nanomaterials with controllable composition and structure, to fit for the specific requirement in different systems and promote the device performance.In order to prevent the aggregation of graphene sheets, we designed a method to fabricate 3D macro porous graphene by using bi-continuous polymer templates. The structure and pore size of the graphene can be controlled by corresponding polymer templates. The resulting graphene monolith materials were used as the supercapacitor electrode and exhibited excellent stability (over 6000 cycles with capacity retention of 98%). This work provides a novel way to fabricate high-quality, macroporous graphene that can be useful in applications such as electrochemical energy storage electrodes and high surface area catalyst scaffolds.To investigate the Li-oxygen battery discharge reaction pathway, patterned Au-nanodots as surface-enhanced Raman substrates are prepared by using a universal method of metal deposition through a nano-shadow mask. The discharge products on different electrodes (graphene and gold) were analyzed and the results indicated that the reaction process on the lithium-air cathode was significantly d
