Electrochemical Double-layer Capacitor Using Organosilicon Electrolytes
WARF: P05178US

Inventors: Robert West, Viatcheslav Dementiev, Robert Hamers, Kiu-Yuen Tse

The Invention
Disclosed are supercapacitors having organosilicon electrolytes, high surface area/porous electrodes, and optionally organosilicon separators. Electrodes are formed from high surface area material (such as porous carbon nanotubes or carbon nanofibers), which has been impregnated with the electrolyte. These type devices appear particularly suitable for use in electric and hybrid electric vehicles.
