About Cover

3D printing as the state-of-the-art emerging technology offers a platform for the new industrial horizons. The manufacturing process for creating 3D physical objects done via successive layer-by-layer deposition of materials such as metal, plastic, ceramics, or even living cells. The 3D printing concept was first proposed in the 1980s using stereolithography to make polymer objects. 3D technology could transform manufacturing, global product consumption and supply chains. The cover photo of July 2019 issue describes the structure of a 3D printed objects and to celebrate the 39th anniversary of its innovation.

Abstract

Two organic compounds namely Acridine (ACD) and 9-aminoacridine (ACD-NH2) have been investigated as electrode materials for an aqueous rechargeable lithium-ion battery (ARLIB) applications. The electrochemical investigations reveal that the active species act as anodes in ARLIB systems. In this regard, nitrogen group act as redox center and undergo electrochemical reaction with Li-ions during charge and discharge process. The synthesis of 9-amonoacridine is done by standard method called chichibabin reaction. Amination of ACD enhances the electrochemical behaviour of the molecule. To improve the electrochemical performances of ACD & ACD-NH2, graphene is used as an additive for ARLIB system. The decorated molecules such as decorated Acridine (dACD) and decorated 9-aminoacridine (dACD-NH2) showed improved electrochemical performance as compared with ACD & ACD-NH2. The decoration is of great importance concerning capacity, reversibility and stability of cycling behavior during charge and discharge processes. Charge/discharge tests show that ACD, ACD-NH2, dACD, and dACD-NH2 have achieved initial discharge capacities of 119, 122, 149 and 220 mAh g-1 respectively at a current density of 0.2 mA. The good cyclic performance and agreeable discharge capacity of the cell signifies the application of dACD-NH2 as anode material for ARLIB system.  © VBRI Press.
