Abstract

All carbon aerogels (up to 1000 cm3) with ultralow density (down to 0.16 mg cm−3) and temperature-invariant (-190–900 °C) super-elasticity are fabricated by facile assembling of commercial carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and chemically-converted giant graphene sheets, on the basis of the synergistic effect between elastic CNTs ribs and giant graphene cell walls.
