Applications of reduced graphene oxide

Applications of reduced graphene oxide

Internship Description

The project will make use of the method developed in the lab for the production of mesoporous reduced graphene oxide. Besides looking into the possibility to scale it up, the student will investigate possible applications for it namely in the environmental and energy-related fields.

​​

Deliverables/Expectations

Master the production of reduced graphene oxide​;

Optimize the yield of the entire synthesis procedure and develop a strategy for scaled-up production;

Evaluate quantitatively the gas and energy storage capacity of the material.
