Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, have developed a free-standing reduced graphene oxide (r-GO) aerogel for use as a supporting electrode for the electrochemical redox reaction of sulfur in a catholyte-based lithium-sulfur battery. The highly porous structure is easily infiltrated by a catholyte solution providing a homogeneous distribution of the sulfur active material in the conductive graphene matrix and ensures efficient electrochemical reactions.
