This thesis is focused on investigating the potential of two novel types of graphene nanomaterials for use as electrode coatings in the next generation of fuel cell and energy storage systems. In particular the development of nitrogenated graphene nanoplatelets (NGPs) as metal-free oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) catalysts for cathodes in alkaline fuel cells is presented. Additionally hydrothermally reduced graphene oxide (rGO) as an ORR catalyst and power storage material have also been investigated.
