Title: Structurally Defined 3D Nanographene Assemblies via Bottom-Up Chemical Synthesis for Highly Efficient Lithium Storage

Abstract

In this paper, functionalized 3D nanographenes with controlled electronic properties have been synthesized through a multistep organic synthesis method and are further used as promising anode materials for lithium-ion batteries, exhibiting a much increased capacity (up to 950 mAh g-1), three times higher than that of the graphite anode (372 mAh g-1).
