New paper published in Journal of Physical Chemistry C on in situ electrochemistry of ionic liquids in carbon nanopores

New paper published in Journal of Physical Chemistry C on ion electrosorption of ionic liquids. Using the synergy of electrochemical dilatometry and electrochemical quartz crystal microbalance methodology, important information can be derived. We found that the charging mechanism at low charge is characterized by the exchange of more smaller ions by fewer larger ions. At higher charges, the system is changing to preferred counterion adsorption, which is resulting in a strong increase in the electrode volume. This work was in collaboration with Bernhard Roling from Philipps-Universität Marburg.

Two contributions at the ISE conference in Providence

There are two contributions with our work at this year’s Annual Meeting of the International Society of Electrochemistry. On August 29th, Juhan Lee is giving an invited oral presentation wiht the title “Redox-enabling nanoporous carbons for high-performance energy storage” and collaborator Bastian Etzold (TU Darmstadt) is giving an oral talk on “Core-shell carbide-derived carbons as platform for high performance electrochemical energy storage and electrocatalysis”.
