A simple method for the synthesis of a hierarchically self-assembled zinc oxide is presented, in which graphene oxide is used to assist in the assembly of the structure and improve the electrical conductivity of the ZnO. The self-assembled ZnO formed on graphene oxide exhibits a high specific capacity, while also demonstrating good rate performance and cycling stability due to the advantages of using both nanoparticles and a secondary structure.
