Title: Scaffold-free 3D porous electrode and method of making a scaffold-free 3D porous electrode

Abstract

A scaffold-free 3D porous electrode comprises a network of interconnected pores, where each pore is surrounded by a multilayer film including a first layer of electrochemically active material, one or more monolayers of graphene on the first layer of electrochemically active material, and a second layer of electrochemically active material on the one or more monolayers of graphene. A method of making a scaffold-free 3D porous electrode includes depositing one or more monolayers of graphene onto a porous scaffold to form a graphene coating on the porous scaffold, and depositing a first layer of an electrochemically active material onto the graphene coating. The porous scaffold is removed to expose an underside of the graphene coating, and a second layer of the electrochemically active material is deposited onto the underside of the graphene coating, thereby forming the scaffold-free 3D porous electrode.
