Electrochemistry of Graphene and related 2D Materials
Graphene has many intriguing physical properties, many of which (e.g. conductivity, surface area, strength and flexibility) make it an ideal electrode material. Since its first isolation by our colleagues from physics, Andre Geim and Kostya Novoselov, the electrochemical properties of graphene has become one of the most intensely studied applications for graphene – with specific applications in batteries and supercapacitors to the fore. We are working in the area of electrochemical energy storage, however we are also interested in the fundamental electrochemical behaviour of graphene electrodes, and in the electrochemical preparation of graphene using ionic intercalation/exfoliation. For specific details, see under the names of individual researchers.
