Vanadium & graphene nanotech for fast charging batteries

Hybrid ribbons of vanadium and graphene thousands of times thinner than a sheet of paper could be the basis for a superior cathode for lithium-ion batteries, say researchers at Rice University.

Hydrothermal processing of vanadium pentoxide and graphene oxide creates graphene-coated ribbons of crystalline vanadium oxide, which show great potential as ultrafast charging and discharging electrodes for lithium-ion batteries, according to a report in phys.org.
