Asymmetric supercapacitors with high energy densities.

Summary of "Asymmetric supercapacitors with high energy densities."

The low energy densities of supercapacitors (SCs) are generally limited by the used anodes. To develop SCs with high energy densities, Fe3+ modified V2O5@GQDs (m-V2O5@GQDs) and ZIF-67-derived nanoporous carbon loaded with Mn3O4 (C/N-Mn3O4) were synthesized. After their detailed characterization using electron microscopy, X-ray methods and electrochemical techniques, they were further utilized as the anode and the cathode, respectively, to construct asymmetric supercapacitors (ASCs). The as-synthesized m-V2O5@GQDs improve the poor conductivity of V2O5, contributing greatly to a specific capacitance of 761 F g-1 at a current density of 2 A g-1. With application of a cell voltage of 2 V, an energy density of up to 99.4 W h kg-1 is achieved at a power density of 1000 W kg-1. Such ASCs also exhibit outstanding cycling performance (95% of initial capacitance even after 10 000 charging/discharging cycles). This study thus provides a new way to design and construct ASCs with high energy densities.

Electron transfer through the cytochrome system liberating free energy which is transformed into high-energy phosphate bonds.

Electric power supply devices which convert biological energy, such as chemical energy of metabolism or mechanical energy of periodic movements, into electrical energy.

Devices which accelerate electrically charged atomic or subatomic particles, such as electrons, protons or ions, to high velocities so they have high kinetic energy.

The transfer of energy of a given form among different scales of motion. (From McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 6th ed). It includes the transfer of kinetic energy and the transfer of chemical energy. The transfer of chemical energy from one molecule to another depends on proximity of molecules so it is often used as in techniques to measure distance such as the use of FORSTER RESONANCE ENERGY TRANSFER.
