||Carbon-based materials such as CNT (1D) and graphene (2D) have been widely studied as electrode materials in various
applications, including sensing, catalyst and energy storage. The extraordinary properties of these carbon-based materials
provide possible advantages in reduced reaction potential, low surface fouling, and large surface area. This project aims to
investigate possible combination of the 1D and 2D carbon-based materials in the form of 3D structures. The possible new
structure could exhibit the following desirable characteristics: 1) conformal deposition with ordered 3D CNT/graphene
structures; 2) high surface area with active surfaces; 3) feasibility of embedding other catalysts for electrochemical reactions.
The long term goals are to optimize the 3D graphene/CNT materials both structurally and functionally for applications in
electrochemical sensors, catalysts, and energy storage devices.
