Ionic liquid gel gives supercapacitors a boost
A simple method for confining an ionic liquid in a methyl cellulose matrix yields a porous, gel-like material that may be useful for fabricating supercapacitors, according to a new study (ACS Appl. Mater. Interfaces 2017,DOI: 10.1021/acsami.7b07479). Supercapacitors are rechargeable electrostatic energy storage devices that are widely used in electric vehicles, medical devices, and consumer electronics. Unlike batteries, which . . .
