Abstract

Graphene-based aerogels with porous structure and three-dimensional (3D) network have attracted plentiful interests recently because they could exhibit as an excellent matrix for various kinds of nanoparticles, thus providing a potential prospect in a variety of applications. In this report, 3D composite aerogel with poriferous structure assembly of bismuth tungstate sheets and graphene nanosheets has been prepared by a simple hydrothermal process. The 3D multihole structure of the hybrid aerogel could not only provide enormous surface area, but also facilitate electron transfer and ion transmission which could decrease the electrode internal resistance and consequently improve the capacitive property. As a result, the Bi2WO6/graphene hybrid aerogel achieves a large specific capacitance of 714 F g-1 at the current density of 4 A g-1. The hybrid aerogel could provide a new method for developing high-performance energy storage materials.
