Two articles appearing in the journal ACS Nano are listed among the top 20 most cited articles for the three years ending May 2011. Both report on the results of collaborations with the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory.
"Ternary Self-Assembly of Ordered Metal Oxide-Graphene Nanocomposites for Electrochemical Energy Storage" shows that SnO2-graphene nanocomposite films can achieve near theoretical specific energy density without significant charge/discharge degradation.
"Self-Assembled TiO2ï¿½Graphene Hybrid Nanostructures for Enhanced Li-Ion Insertion" attributes increased electrode conductivity to the use of a percolated graphene network embedded into the metal oxide electrodes.
