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 have 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 behavior of graphene electrodes, and in the electrochemical preparation of graphene using ionic intercalation/exfoliation. For specific details, see under the names of individual researchers.
