Are Ultracapacity Polymeric Supercapacitors viable alternatives to Batteries?

Posted on June 19th, 2017 by in New Materials & Applications

Poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene) polystyrene sulfonate (PEDOT:PSS)

The answer depends on whether the recent advances in supercapacitor development help overcome the disadvantages of the capacitance technology, i.e. small amounts of energy storage.  According to Dr. Brendan Howlin, at the University of Surrey Department of Chemistry, the ultracapacity supercapacitors have the potential to “open the door to unimaginably exciting developments”.
