New paper published in the Journal of Materials Chemistry A on the promising features of the ZnI2 redox energy storage system. Using activated carbon cloth electrode and a Zn electrode, we achieve a high energy storage performance of 226 Wh/kg and a higher power of 20 kW/kg. The unique strength of iodide adsorption allows stable and efficient operation even without ion exchange membranes.
New paper published in ChemSusChem on using mechanochemical solvent-free synthesis of nitrogen doped nanoporous carbon for supercapacitor electrodes. This work stems from our collaboration with the Junior Investigator Group of Lars Borchardt (TU Dresden) and is being featured on the back cover of the current issue of ChemSusChem.
Today, Volker Presser has his 5-year anniversary as Group Leader at INM.
