A simple method for the mechanochemical synthesis of an effective metal-free electrocatalyst for the oxygen reduction reaction was demonstrated. A nitrogen-doped carbon material was obtained by grinding a mixture of graphene oxide and melamine in a planetary ball mill. The resulting material was characterized by XPS, EPR, and Raman and IR spectroscopy. The nitrogen concentration on the N-bmGO surface was 5.5 at.%. The nitrogen-enriched graphene material (NbmGO has half-wave potential of -0.175/-0.09 V and was shown to possess high activity as an electrocatalyst for oxygen reduction reaction. The electrocatalytic activity of NbmGO can be associated with a high concentration of active sites for the adsorption of oxygen molecules on its surface. The high current retention (93% for 12 h) after continuous polarization demonstrates the excellent long-term stability of NbmGO.

An improved procedure for the preparation of aerogel granules of polytetrafluoroethylene-graphene oxide (PTFE-GO) with a composition of 50:50 (in wt %) and a specific density of 35 ± 2 mg/cm3 is described. The technique practically excludes the granule cracking. The specific density of the pellets after reduction using hydrazine vapor and annealing at 370 °C decreased to 29 ± 2 mg/cm3. The PTFE-reduced GO (rGO) pellets obtained were tested as a recyclable sorbent for isopropyl alcohol (IPA) in sorption/combustion cycles. It has been shown that the aerogel sorption capacity for IPA increases from 35.6 to 39.3 g/g as a result of alcohol burning off. During the combustion of IPA, the temperature of an individual pellet can exceed 300 °C. When several contingent pellets are burned, the temperature of their heating increases. The fine-pored structure of the near-surface layer of the granule is destroyed during the alcohol burning, the internal structure with larger pores is exposed, and the relative proportion of PTFE on the surface of the granules decreases. It was also shown that the specific surface area of PTFE-rGO increases from 26 to 49 m2/g during cycling.

The alkaline activation of a carbonized graphene oxide/dextrin mixture yielded a carbon-based nanoscale material (AC-TR) with a unique highly porous structure. The BET-estimated specific surface area of the material is 3167 m2/g, which is higher than the specific surface area of a graphene layer. The material has a density of 0.34 g/cm3 and electrical resistivity of 0.25 Ω·cm and its properties were studied using the elemental analysis, transmission electron microscopy (TEM), electron diffraction (ED), X-ray diffraction (XRD), Raman spectroscopy, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), X-ray induced Auger electron spectroscopy (XAES), and electron energy loss spectroscopy (EELS) in the plasmon excitation range. From these data, we derive an integral understanding of the structure of this material. The concentration of sp3 carbon atoms was found to be relatively low with an absolute value that depends on the measurement method. It was shown that there is no graphite-like (002) peak in the electron and X-ray diffraction pattern. The characteristic size of a sp2-domain in the basal plane estimated from the Raman spectra was 7 nm. It was also found that plasmon peaks in the EELS spectrum of AC-TR are downshifted compared to those of graphite.

A mixture of water suspensions of graphene oxide (GO) and polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) was used to make the films GO-PTFE (50:50). They became conductive (2.0-2.8 S/cm) while maintaining flexibility after reduction with hydrazine and subsequent annealing at 370 °C. The structure and morphology of the reduced films (rGO-PTFE) are examined in detail by means of a number of techniques such as scanning electron microscopy, atomic force microscopy, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, Raman, and contact angle wetting. The results of the films tested as current collectors in a metal-free supercapacitor with electrodes from microwave exfoliated GO and an acid (1 M H2SO4) electrolyte are presented.

Polytetrafluoroethylene-based aerogel was synthesized for the first time. Graphene oxide was used as a binder. After reduction with hydrazine and annealing at 370 °C, the aerogel with a density of 29 ± 2 mg/cm3 became superhydrophobic. The aerogel was characterized by IR spectroscopy, scanning electron microscopy, and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. The sorption capacity of the aerogel for seven solvents and its sorption recyclability for hexane were measured.
