Hexaazatriphenylene derivatives/GO composites as organic cathodes for lithium ion batteries

Abstract

Redox active organic molecules as cathode materials for lithium ion batteries are promising. However, these compounds are plagued by their high solubilities in electrolyte solution, leading to capacity decay and short cycling life. Herein, we report nano-composites of hexaazatriphenylene (HAT) derivatives and graphene oxide (GO) (hexaazatrinaphthalene (HATN)/GO and hexaazatrinaphthalene tricarboxylic acid (HATNTA)/GO) as cathode materials for lithium ion battery. HAT derivatives demonstrates strong π-π and H-bond interaction with GO, which remarkably suppresses its dissolution in electrolyte, leading to the significant improvement of its electrochemical performance.
