Graphene Batteries

In this project various types of carbon materials are characterized and assessed as advanced electrodes of electrochemical energy storage systems such as Li- (Na-, Al-) ion batteries and supercapacitors. The electrodes based on functionalized carbon materials are considered to have a potential to overcome limitations of conventional Li-ion batteries and supercapacitors, exhibiting high capacity and fast charge capability at the same time. Along with evaluation of the energy storage performance of the carbon electrodes-based cells, characterization of physicochemical properties of the carbon materials is also essential for the rational, systematic development of the materials.
