Summary of "Reduced graphene oxide supported quasi-two-dimensional ZnCo2O4 nanosheets for lithium ion batteries with high electrochemical stability."

In this work, quasi two dimensional spinel ZnCo2O4 (ZCO) nanosheets constituted by ZCO grain with different size were prepared via a facile solvothermal method and followed by a post-treatment. It shows that the small ZCO grain can be obtained by a fast cooling post-treatment. Further, to enhance the conductivity of ZCO, uniform and compact ZCO nanosheets was in-situ grown on reduced graphene oxide (rGO), which was employed as template. When used as anode for lithium ions battery (LIB), rGO@ZCO has a large reversible capacity of 1107.2 mAh·g-1 at 100 mA·g-1 after 100 cycling, which is the highest among all ZCO samples. Moreover, when the current density is from 50 to 500 mA·g-1, the capacity of rGO@ZCO decreased from 1046.5 to 527.6 mAh·g-1, implying the superior rate ability. The electrochemical analysis together with calculations demonstrates that the unique structure is beneficial to promote the charge transport and adapt the volume change in charge-discharge process, resulting in expected LIB performance.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Echocardiography amplified by the addition of depth to the conventional two-dimensional ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY visualizing only the length and width of the heart. Three-dimensional ultrasound imaging was first described in 1961 but its application to echocardiography did not take place until 1974. (Mayo Clin Proc 1993;68:221-40)

The process of generating three-dimensional images by electronic, photographic, or other methods. For example, three-dimensional images can be generated by assembling multiple tomographic images with the aid of a computer, while photographic 3-D images (HOLOGRAPHY) can be made by exposing film to the interference pattern created when two laser light sources shine on an object.

A free radical gas produced endogenously by a variety of mammalian cells, synthesized from ARGININE by NITRIC OXIDE SYNTHASE. Nitric oxide is one of the ENDOTHELIUM-DEPENDENT RELAXING FACTORS released by the vascular endothelium and mediates VASODILATION. It also inhibits platelet aggregation, induces disaggregation of aggregated platelets, and inhibits platelet adhesion to the vascular endothelium. Nitric oxide activates cytosolic GUANYLATE CYCLASE and thus elevates intracellular levels of CYCLIC GMP.
