Novel Nanotechnology For The Practical Application Of Aqueous Sodium Ion Capacitors

In the age of post-lithium-ion batteries featuring dilemmas including rising demands, a sharp decline in lithium reserves, and severe safety issues, aqueous energy storage systems (AESSs) demonstrate their advantages due to their low cost and excellent safety performance in nature. By replacing organic solvents adopted by common lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) with aqueous electrolytes, AESSs, such as sodium ion capacitors, exhibit eco-friendly traits and inherent safety, which fits modern society's theme of “green and sustainable.” Furthermore, the low-cost superiority also helps...
