Carbon Nanotube Sponges for Battery and Supercapacitor Research

  • €15195

Product details:

Carbon nanotube sponge is formed by the self-assembly of carbon nanotubes into a 3D hierarchical porous structure via a chemical vapor deposition (CVD) process. It has unique features such as high surface area, lightweight, elastic, chemically stable, and highly porous. The CNT sponges can be deformed into any shapes elastically and compressed to large-strains repeatedly in air or liquids without collapse. It is widely used as template to synthesize 3D porous electrode material for battery and supercapacitor application. The typical benefits of using carbon nanotube sponge are improved capacity, cycling performance and rate capability. It also can be use for applications such as catalyst, water purification and oil spill cleanup.
