Intumescent Flame Retardants Inspired Template-assistant Synthesis of N/P Dual-doped 3D Carbon Network for High-Performance Supercapacitors

Project description

New carbon material to boost energy density of supercapacitors

Supercapacitors are electrochemical energy storage devices that can quickly deliver or store large quantities of energy. Carbon-based supercapacitors offer higher power, better cycle life, and higher reliability than batteries, but have much lower energy density. This limits their wider adoption in grid, electronics and many other applications. The EU-funded IFR-CNS project is working on cost-effectively producing super-capacitive carbon-activated electrodes with superior electrochemistry performance compared to state of the art. The project will leverage highly effective fire-retardant materials called intumescent flame retardants and nanocrystals to form porous 3D carbon networks. These new carbon-based electrode materials will have an energy density similar to high-performance batteries.
