An alternating stack (SG/GN) consisting of SnO2-functionalized graphene oxide (SG) and amine-functionalized GO (GN) is prepared in solution. The thermally reduced SG/GN (r(SG/GN)) with decreased micro-mesopores and completely eliminated macropores, results in a high reversible capacity and excellent capacity retention (872 mA h g−1 after 200 cycles at 100 mA g−1) when compared to a composite without GN.
