Dr. Yury Gogotsi,s Plenary Lecture on "Functional Carbon Nanomaterials for Capacitive Energy Storage"

Wide use of renewable energy sources will require a drastically increased ability to store electrical energy. Chemical (batteries) and capacitive energy storage (electrochemical capacitors or supercapacitors) devices are expected to play an important role, as we are moving towards the electrical economy. This presentation will provide a brief summary of carbon use in capacitive energy storage. The main message is that the success in increasing both, the energy stored by the device and its power, can be achieved by combining the right carbon (nano)structure with a proper electrolyte and the optimal electrode design.

There is no perfect carbon material and no electrolyte to suit every performance goal. However, a large variety of nanostructured carbon materials are available nowadays. Carbon materialsThe exciting world of carbon materials includes 0-, 1-, 2- and 3D structures. Zero- and one-dimensional nanoparticles, such as onion-like carbon and nanotubes, can provide a high power due to fast ion sorption/desorption on their outer surfaces. Two-dimensional graphene has been receiving an increasing attention due to its higher charge-discharge rates compared to porous carbons and high volumetric energy density. Three-dimensional porous activated, carbide-derived and templated carbon networks, having a high surface area and porosity in the subnanometer or a few-nanometers range, can provide high energy density if the pore size is matched with the electrolyte ion size. While aqueous electrolytes, such as sodium sulfate, are the safest and least expensive, they have a limited voltage window. Organic electrolytes are the most commonly used ones in commercial devices. Non-flammable ionic liquids are attracting an increasing attention due to their low vapor pressure leading to a safe operation in the range from -50°C to at least 100°C and a larger voltage window resulting in a higher energy density compared to other electrolytes.

Further advances in development of materials and understanding charged solid-electrolyte interfaces are expected to lead to a wider use of capacitive energy storage at the scales ranging from microelectronics to automobiles and electrical grid.

Nanodiamonds Can Prevent Lithium Battery Fires

Nanodiamonds in the electrolyte solution of lithium ion batteries prevent the formation of dendrites that cause runaway heat-up resulting in fires. Source: Drexel University and Tsinghua UniversityScientists researching battery-related fires and explosions, such as the incidents that got Samsung Galaxy Note 7s banned from airline flights last year, took the first step toward preventing the fires when they traced the source of the runaway heat buildup to small dendrites that form between the anode and cathode. Now a materials specialist at Drexel University (Philadelphia) has proposed a low-cost, easy way to prevent the dendrites from forming.

Partial breaking of the Coulombic ordering of ionic liquids confined in carbon nanopores

An international team of researchers, including Drexel's Yury Gogotsi, PhD, observed that ions will forgo their typical alternating charge ordering when they are forced to jam into a small, sub-nanometer-sized, space — a behavior modification not unlike people relinquishing personal space in order to pack into a crowded subway car. The discovery could lead to safer energy storage devices and better water filtration membranes.In their most recent paper in Nature Materials researcher from Drexel University led by prof. Yury Gogotsi showed that Coulombic ordering reduces when the pores can accommodate only a single layer of ions. The non-Coulombic ordering is further enhanced in the presence of an applied electric potential.
