Conducting polymer composites for supercapacitors


Conducting polymer composites for supercapacitors

Angesh Chandra, Archana Chandra

Synthesis, ion conduction and device fabrications of some ion conducting composite polymer electrolytes (CPEs) are reported in the present chapter. The different experimental and theoretical tools have been explained for preparation and ion conduction mechanism of CPEs. The working principle of some polymer electrolyte based supercapacitors has been explained, as reported by research work.
