Title: Graphene Oxide and Reduced Graphene Oxide Coating via Electrocoagulation

 

Invention: This invention is a method to deposit graphene oxide or reduced graphene oxide films onto conductive substrates that utilize colloid and electrochemical principles. The graphene oxide films adhere to an anode while maintaining controlled thermal and electrical conductivity.

 

Background: Electrode and solid state materials used for energy storage devices often experience heat build up. Graphene oxide is perfect for use on anodes because it is a thermally controlled material that can aid in heat dispersion and the conductive properties do not interfere with electrical energy transfer. In addition, this material provides a corrosion resistant coating that further protects the devices that it adheres to.

 

Applications:

  • Electronics, ceramics, batteries, or any application where the materials its added to seek to be stronger, lighter, or more conductive
  • Supercapacitors
  • Thermal interface films that remove heat from electronic packages
  • Corrosion resistant coatings

 

Advantages:

  • Work to reduce graphene corrosion thereby preserving its material properties in any application
  • Can be done at room temperature
  • Easily scalable
  • Cost effective
