Investigation of Protonic Electrochemical Capacitors

Research Project Outline

The development of secure, low-cost energy storage devices with energy densities comparable to that of lithium-ion battery is very important to expand green technological options for suppressing CO2 emission. We investigate protonic electrochemical capacitors employing monoatomic layered electrodes to achieve markedly large capacities in aqueous electrochemical cell systems. A new mechanism of huge energy storage in these high-surface-area, monoatomic layered electrodes will be elucidated to develop science and technologies for advanced energy storage devices.
