Abstract

With the help of sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS), uniform polypyrrole (PPy) coatings were conveniently grown on both sides of reduced graphene oxide (rGO) nanosheet surfaces via a template-directed in situ polymerization. The rGO/PPy composites exhibited greatly enhanced thermoelectric performance with a power factor at room temperature of up to 3.01 μW m−1 K−2, which is 84 times greater than that of the pure PPy.
