Development of low-cost energy storage devices advanced [Registered]

Although the superior electrochemical performance of supercapacitors capable of rapidly storing electrical energy is due to reversible ion adsorption in porous carbon electrodes, the molecular origin of this phenomenon is still poorly understood. A quantitative picture of the structure of an ionic liquid adsorbed inside realistically modelled microporous carbon electrodes is now proposed by an international team of materials researchers comprising University’s Dr Yury Gogotsi (Drexel University), Mathieu Salanne, Céline Merlet and Benjamin Rotenberg (Université Paris 06), Paul A. Madden (Oxford University) and Patrice Simon and Pierre-Louis Taberna of Université Paul Sabatier). Their work published in the April issue of…
