Abstract

Reduced graphene oxide (RGO) was prepared from natural graphite by Hummers method. Few layers graphene was decorated with titanium by an incipient wetness impregnation method. The pristine graphene shows hydrogen storage capacity equal to 1.3 wt % while graphene decorated by titanium (RGO-Ti) enhanced hydrogen storage capacity to 1.4 wt%. We showed that titanium addition improved hydrogen storage capacity by chemical interactions. These interactions can be used for fabrication of different graphene-based materials as potential candidates for developing new absorbents for energy application.
