Furthermore, the Raman spectra (Figure 3) for the carbon nanotubes/graphene composites and [Co.sub.3][O.sub.4]/carbon nanotubes/graphene composites have three same peaks positioned at 1355 [cm.sup.-1] (D), 1583 [cm.sup.-1] (G), and 2679 [cm.sup.-1] (2D) which can be assigned to carbon nanotubes and graphene; however, the additional peak at 667 [cm.sup.-1] in the Raman spectrum for [Co.sub.3][O.sub.4]/carbon nanotubes/graphene composites can be attributed to [Co.sub.3][O.sub.4] which is in good agreement with the previous literatures [5, 8].
