A novel primary cell based on graphene and Multi-walled carbon nanotube (MWCNT) as embedded materials have been developed with Al/Al2O3/Activated carbon (AC) as a matrix. The performances of the cells are quite interesting evidenced by the results of electrochemical studies. There is no formation of dendrite growth of Al which is demonstrated through TEM and SEM studies. The longer life of the cell is acclaimed due to the formation of the flake-like structure of graphene and resistivity towards the crystallinity of graphene layers. The corrosion resistance of Al/Al2O3 and graphene intercalated systems is found high. The resultant graphene-based cell exhibited 1.68 V and assembly of each of 2 such cells yielded 3.36 V which is equivalent to Li-Ion batteries. © 2020 Elsevier Ltd and Techna Group S.r.l.
