Graphene nanoribbons could double Li-ion battery capacity

Rice University researchers have used ribbons of graphene to boost the efficiency of lithium ion batteries.

The nanoribbons, when combined with a tin oxide solution, have been shown to double the capacity for lithium compared to standard anodes used in current commercial batteries.

“After 50 charge/discharge cycles, the test units retained a capacity that was still more than double that of the graphite currently used for lithium battery anodes,” noted Rice chemist James Tour.
