Development avenues for electrolyte and separator systems

16 July 2015 | Worldwide by Franco Gonzalez
Supercapacitors have seen tremendous improvements over the past decade, resulting in higher power density, higher energy density and lower prices. Electrodes have seen the most amount of attention, effort and development. In this article however, we focus instead on electrolytes and separators. Directions in electrolyte research are towards high voltage, more stable and greener solutions. Similarly, separators need to improve purity and high voltage stability. This is particularly true if paper separators are to succeed. We will discuss these developments in this article.
