Abstract

Graphene nanosheets were produced through electrolytic exfoliation of graphite foils in an aqueous solution containing an electrolyte, poly(sodium-4-styrenesulfonate). We confirmed the formation of graphene nanosheets by X-ray diffraction, Raman spectroscopy, and high-resolution transmission electron microscopy. The electrochemical performance of the graphene nanosheets was evaluated using cyclic voltammetry, galvanostatic charge-discharge cycling, and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy. In order to address the feasibility of their use as lightweight anodes for a Li ion battery, we also present the direct assembly of graphene nanosheets onto metal current collectors and the fabrication of freestanding graphene nanosheets paper electrodes.
