Abstract

Since the practical existence of graphene proved in 2004, graphene has generated so much hype in numerous research areas. Graphene is a single layer of carbon atoms with hexagonal lattice structure. Due to its lattice structure graphene has high electrical conductivity rate and many other properties. When layers of graphene stacked on each other it forms into graphite. To separate the graphene from graphite various exfoliation processes are used, but quality of graphene varies for different processes. To produce pure graphene, expensive and time consuming processes are required. This creates hurdles in utilization of graphene for various industrial applications. An energy storage device is one from various applications of graphene, which is liable for adaptation of electric vehicle. Performance of electric vehicle depends on charging time, storage capacity of energy storage device, which can be enhanced by utilizing graphene in their construction. Hence the aim of this work is to enhance performance of electric vehicle by utilizing graphene in energy storage device.
