Book Description :

The storage of electrical charge in electrochemical double layer capacitors (EDLCs) is ideal for short-term energy storage in stationary and mobile or portable applications in which intermittent power demands and reliability are of prime importance. A significant limitation of the currently employed EDLC technology is the low energy density, whereby a promising approach towards increasing the energy content of present EDLC systems is a widening of the operational voltage window. However, a significant reduction of the device lifetime is observed under elevated voltage conditions. In the present work, the contribution of interfacial charge transfer towards charge storage in and aging of EDLCs based on non-aqueous electrolyte solutions at elevated voltages is considered. The possible charge transfer mechanisms are thus conveniently classified as ionic or electronic. Through an improved understanding of these processes, possible routes for optimizing charge storage and avoiding aging at elevated voltages may be developed. A coconut shell derived activated carbon was selected as electrode material in non-aqueous solutions of 1 M Et4NBF4 in acetonitrile (AN) and in propylene carbonate (PC). Through an electrochemical characterization of these systems via cyclic voltammetry, the potential regions of essentially ideal polarizability could be identified and separated from the regions in which irreversible charge transfer took place. The region of ideal polarizability was characterized by in situ Raman spectroscopy, electrical resistance measurements and electrochemical dilatometry. The results are discussed in the context of those obtained on single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) in order to establish a comparison with a high surface area electrode material of well-defined geometric and electronic structure. Fundamental differences in the reversible doping behavior of the two materials were observed, indicating that a conceptual representation of the carbonaceous framework of the activated carbon must take into account the presence of significant disorder and deviations from the idealized assembly of graphene fragments. Differences in the capacitive charging behavior could be attributed to the different electronic density of states of the materials, thus highlighting the importance of the electronic structure of carbonaceous electrodes for the storage of charge in EDLCs. In order to investigate the possibility of ionic charge transfer in EDLC systems, the contribution of ion insertion processes to the charge storage and electrode degradation of both graphitic and activated carbon electrodes was studied using in situ electrochemical dilatometry, X-ray diffraction and small-angle X-ray scattering. It was found that the insertion of ions into graphite proceeds via well-defined intercalation sites, with the electrochemical intercalation of BF4– leading to staging and solvent cointercalation for both AN- and PC-based electrolytes. Further, the crystallinity of the graphitic electrodes was found to degrade markedly in the direction perpendicular to the graphene sheets, which could largely be attributed to the electrochemical decomposition of intercalated electrolyte species, i.e. a combination of ionic and electronic charge transfer. On the the other hand, ion insertion processes in activated carbon could be attributed to the accumulation of ions within the confined insertion sites offered by micropores during charging. The steric requirements of these ions result in a macroscopically observable, reversible electrode expansion. A comparison with the expansion of entangled SWCNT electrodes and an expanded graphite electrode proved that the occupation of insertion sites depends directly on the electrode potential and the accessibility of the insertion site. As a particular example of this behavior, it was shown that the interstitial porosity of SWCNT bundles can be made accessible by electrochemical polarization, leading to an intrinsic capacitance enhancement. As an important conclusion, the accessibility of such sites must be evaluated in situ in order to determine their possible contribution to charge storage within the stability limits of the electrolyte solution. Studies of the electronic charge transfer contribution towards the aging of EDLCs in the present work emphasized the possible formation of insoluble solid electrolyte degradation products. Systematic aging experiments using laboratory-scale test cells at elevated voltages enabled to distinguish between the loss of electrochemical performance and physicochemical modification of the activated carbon electrodes on the single electrode level. The rapid rate of aging at elevated voltages was found to depend notably on the solvent. In the AN-based electrolyte solution, the performance loss at a cell voltage of 3.5 V could be primarily attributed to the blockage of porosity at the positive electrode by the formation of solid degradation products within the porous structure of the activated carbon, most likely due to the oxidation of AN. This aging mechanism is promoted by the defluorination of the polymeric binder at the negative electrode, which results in unfavorable potential window shifts during aging. Preliminary studies regarding aging in the PC-based electrolyte indicated a different primary aging mechanism, likely due to reductive processes involving PC at the negative electrode. Notably, the detrimental effects of electrolyte degradation on the EDLC performance appeared to be significantly more pronounced than the contribution of ion insertion processes to aging. Finally, suggestions for future research are made in order to deepen and exploit the insights gained regarding the insertion of ions in carbonaceous electrodes as well as the aging of EDLCs at elevated voltages.

Book Description :

Abstract: Although great efforts have been made on development of high performance Li-ion batteries and fuel cells in the past, the slow power capability and high maintenance cost have kept them away from many applications. Recently, supercapacitors have drawn great attention because of their high charge/discharge rate, long life cycle, outstanding power density and no short circuit concern. However, supercapacitors generally exhibit low energy density. The objective of this thesis research is to develop graphene-based supercapacitors with simultaneously high power density and energy density at low production cost. Supercapacitors, also known as ultracapacitors or electrochemical capacitors, store energy as electrical charge on highly porous materials. Currently one major challenge that keeps supercapacitors from their promising applications is their low energy density. One promising electrode material candidate for electric double-layer (EDL) supercapacitors is graphene. Graphene, due to its unique lattice structure, exhibits appealing electrical properties, chemical stability and high surface area. Ideally a monolayer of sp2 bonded carbon atoms can reach a specific capacitance up to ~550 F/g as well as a high surface area of 2675 m2/g. So far, a variety of methods have been developed to synthesis graphene starting from graphite, but the cost, graphene quality and productivity remain main obstacles for their industrial application. The porous graphene material reported in this thesis was synthesized by a scalable oxidation-reduction method involving a rapid annealing process. The scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) images revealed the morphology and successful exfoliation of reduced graphene oxide (rGO). The interlayer distance characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD) is 3.64 Å (24.44°) suggesting the removal of oxygen-containing functional groups, such as carbonyl, hydroxyl and carboxyl groups. In the X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), the C/O ratio increases from ~2 to ~5 with O1s peak reduced significantly from graphite oxide (GO) to reduced graphene oxide. Furthermore, the successful reduction was verified by the low intensities of oxygen-related peaks in Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR). In addition, the high Brunauer-Emmett-Teller (BET) specific surface area of 410 m2/g and mesoporous structure of the synthesized material would be beneficial to the improvement of charge-storage capability and thus energy density in supercapacitors. To evaluate the electrochemical performance of graphene electrodes, supercapacitors were assembled in symmetrical cell geometry. The near rectangular cyclic voltammetry (CV) curves with EMIMBF4 and LiPF6 at scan rate of 100mV/s suggest very efficient charge transfer within the porous graphene electrodes. The triangle charge-discharge responses with a small voltage drop and vertical spike in the low frequency region of a Nyquist plot indicates an ideal capacitor performance. The specific capacitance of 306.03 F/g and energy density of 148.75 Wh/kg at 1A/g were realized with highly porous graphene electrodes. Meanwhile, the power density extracted at 8A/g reaches ~10 kW/kg, thus, making it suitable for high power applications. Compared with previously investigated carbon-based EDL capacitors, the supercapacitor based on the annealed graphene electrode is a milestone in terms of capacitance and energy density. Moreover, the supercapacitors assembled with graphene electrodes shows excellent stability for 10,000 charge-discharge cycles.

Book Description :

Supercapacitors are a relatively new energy storage system that provides higher energy density than dielectric capacitors and higher power density than batteries. They are particularly suited to applications that require energy pulses during short periods of time, e.g., seconds or tens of seconds. They are recommended for automobiles, tramways, buses, cranes, fork-lifts, wind turbines, electricity load leveling in stationary and transportation systems, etc. Despite the technological maturity of supercapacitors, there is a lack of comprehensive literature on the topic. Many high performance materials have been developed and new scientific concepts have been introduced. Taking into account the commercial interest in these systems and the new scientific and technological developments now is the ideal time to publish this book, capturing all this new knowledge. The book starts by giving an introduction to the general principles of electrochemistry, the properties of electrochemical capacitors, and electrochemical characterization techniques. Electrical double layer capacitors and pseudocapacitors are then discussed, followed by the various electrolyte systems. Modelling, manufacture of industrial capacitors, constraints, testing, and reliability as well as applications are also covered. 'Supercapacitors - Materials, Systems, and Applications' is part of the series on Materials for Sustainable Energy and Development edited by Prof. G.Q. Max Lu. The series covers advances in materials science and innovation for renewable energy, clean use of fossil energy, and greenhouse gas mitigation and associated environmental technologies.
