Researchers at UCLA’s California NanoSystems Institute (CNSI) have successfully combined two nanomaterials to create a new energy storage medium that combines the best qualities of batteries and supercapacitors. The new hybrid supercapacitor stores large amounts of energy, recharges quickly and can last for more than 10,000 recharge cycles. In one design at just one-fifth the […]

Over the past few days EEStor and the company holding better than 70 percent of its ownership, Zenncars, have released an independent test of it composition modified barium titanate ultracapacitor powders. The interest is increasing because Intertek Group Plc (“Intertek”) rigorously tested an extensive sampling of EEStor capacitor layers across multiple voltages (250vdc, 450vdc, 700vdc, […]

James Tour’s lab at Rice University has turned molybdenum disulfide’s two-dimensional form into a nanoporous film that can catalyze the production of hydrogen. The Rice University scientists also report the molybdenum disulfide film can be used for electrical energy storage in a capacitor. The versatile molybdenum disulfide compound classified as a dichalcogenide is inert along […]

Vanderbilt University researchers are imagining a future in which our electrical gadgets are no longer limited by plugs and external power sources. The intriguing prospect is one of the reasons for the current interest in building the capacity to store electrical energy directly into a wide range of products, such as a laptop computer casing […]

Scientists at Oregon State University (OSU) have discovered a fundamental chemical action that could allow cellulose to soon play a major role in making high-tech energy storage devices.  The method discovered turns cellulose, the most abundant organic polymer on Earth and a key component of trees, into an important building block for supercapacitors. OSU chemists […]
