Abstract

original image

A hierarchically nanostructured composite of MnO2/conjugated polymer/graphene is designed and fabricated for lithium ion batteries. The composite can produce a reversible capacity more than ten times that of plain MnO2-based devices. The described approach can be used to create desired hierarchically nanostructured composite electrodes for broad applications in energy conversion/storage systems.
