Aerographite: Ultra Lightweight, Flexible Nanowall, Carbon Microtube Material With Outstanding Mechanical Performance

Matthias Mecklenburg et al. Adv Mater.

Abstract

An ultra lightweight carbon microtube material called Aerographite is synthesized by a novel single-step chemical vapor deposition synthesis based on ZnO networks, which is presently the lightest known material with a density smaller than μg/cm(3). Despite its low density, the hierarchical design leads to remarkable mechanical, electrical, and optical properties. The first experiments with Aerographite electrodes confirm its applicability.
