Poly(vinylferrocene)–reduced graphene oxide as a high power/high capacity cathodic battery material

The preparation and performance of a new cathodic battery material consisting of a composite of poly(vinylferrocene) (PVFc) and reduced graphene oxide (rGO) is described. It shows the highest charge/discharge efficiency (at a rate of 100 A g−1) ever reported for ferrocene–polymer materials.
