Cover Picture: Direct Growth of Flexible Carbon Nanotube Electrodes (Adv. Mater. 3/2008)
Entangled networks of multiwalled carbon nanotubes (CNTs) integrated into a highly conducting carbon layer can be grown on a range of substrates including glassy carbon and metal foils. On p. 566, Gordon Wallace and co-workers report the fabrication of a continuous flexible CNT electrode with high surface area and conductivity. The electrode demonstrates a stable battery capacity of 572 mAh g–1. This discovery provides a direct route for the generation of large-scale flexible CNT electrode materials.
