Abstract

Using dispersion in dissolved polymers [1](Figure 1a), VACNT\AC [2](1b), and Micro-filtrated CNT\AC (1c) composite we were able to clearly demonstrate the positive influence of CNT dispersed in the activated carbon matrices on the mechanical and electrical stability of EDLCs electrodes upon many thousands of cycles. The crystallinity and the associated electromechanical properties of the CNT which are well maintained after the carbonization and activation of the composite active mass, enable the new composite materials to exhibit much higher stability compared to the conventional EDLC electrodes’ materials produced from the activated carbonized polymers, and demonstrate much better electrochemical performances upon cycling. The unique porous morphology of the electrodes, as reflected in the adsorption isotherms (Figure 2), enabled improvements in the electrochemical performances in various applications
