The development of energy storage has become a key issue due to both energy security concerns and the environmental issues associated with traditional energy sources such as fossil fuels. Significant advances in electrical energy storage technologies such as supercapacitors and batteries are required because all most all renewable energy sources are intermittent and high energy and power densities are needed to power electric vehicles. Though important improvements in energy storage technologies have been achieved, significant challenges in high energy, high power storage remain limited the widespread adoption of many renewable energy sources. Transformational improvements in these technologies require a molecular-level understanding of energy storage mechanisms in supercapacitors and batteries. In this talk, we would like to present our recent studies on the dynamics of room-temperature ionic liquids in nanopores ofcarbon materials and cyclic voltammetry performance of supercapacitors.
