Understanding how to design and fabricate surfaces with molecular scale control is a promising approach for the next generation of robust catalysts; these systems maximize catalytic performance while simultaneously minimizing the use of expensive and scarce platinum-group metals (PGM). In addition to molecular structure, of crucial consequence to chemical activity, high surface area, mass transport and conductivity is also critical to optimize performance of support structures. Results of synthesis of turbostratic graphene in 3D architectures (T-3DG) will be presented. Gas phase processing is shown to achieve T-3DG that is important for mechanical stability and electrical conductivity approaching single layer graphene. The self-assembled T-3DG possess bi-continuous pathways that are attractive for gas phase transport. Results of morphological and electrochemical characterization will be presented.
