Supercapacitors challenge batteries

Jan 11, 2021|

Supercapacitors store and release energy very fast but have a low energy density. This might change due to a powerful graphene hybrid material developed by the team of Roland Fischer.

  • COF structure - delicious simulation

Layers step out of line

Dec 17, 2020|

If the stacking structure of the “miracle material” COF is slightly shifted, its properties change dramatically. This happens more often than assumed, as chemists from e-conversion could demonstrate.
