Enhancing Specific Energy and Power in Asymmetric Super capacitors

"Enhancing Specific Energy and Power in Asymmetric Supercapacitors - A Synergetic Strategy based on the Use of Redox Additive Electrolytes"
 - Arvinder Singh & Amreesh Chandra; Scientific Reports volume 6, Article number: 25793 (2016)

In this scientific report from Nature, a research team at Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur – India have successfully shown redox additive electrolytes in combination with multiwall carbon nanotubes/metal oxide composites as ideal candidates for improving specific energy and power of asymmetric super-capacitors (ASCs). Important electrochemical measurements such as EIS, CV, and Galvanostatic charge-discharge were performed using PGSTAT 302N-EIS equipped with automated specific capacitance calculator.
