Topic : Hydrothermal Synthesis and Characterisation of Molybdenum Oxide/ Reduced Graphene Oxide Nanocomposite for Energy Application

Authors:Krishnamurthy G || Veeresha G

Abstract:Despite the importance of reduced graphene oxide/ molybdenum oxide (RGO/MoO3) nanocomposite due to its wide range of properties and corresponding applications, it is a potential candidate for electrode materials in supercapacitors. Though there are a number of methods to synthesize molybdenum oxide/graphene nanocomposites, a highly desirable, alternative green method involving eco-friendly precursors and reagents is most important for the current and future scenario as for as sustainability and scalable production concerned. We here in, have reported the synthesis of (RGO/MoO3) nanocomposite using a mild and facile hydrothermal approach. The preparation method involved the mild reagents such as ammonium molybdate tetrahydrate, hydrazine hydrate Etc. The hydrothermal reaction was carried out at about 200 °C. Highly pristine graphene oxide was obtained from mild treatment of raw pyrolytic graphite in an appropriate ratio of ethanol and water. The structure and morphology of so obtained RGO/MoO3 were studied by using X-ray diffraction (XRD) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) techniques. The composition of the material was analyzed using energy dispersive x-ray (EDX) technique.

Keywords: RGO, MoO3/RGO composite, hydrothermal reaction, super capacitor.
