Fabrication Process and Characterization of Porous Carbon Nanofibers for Electrode

Breif

Well-commercialized activated carbons (ACs) are still less cost-effective and exhibit low specific capacitances (~100 F/g). To address the above limitations, it is required to enhance the electrical conductivity and control the pore size and specific surface area of carbon electrode materials. From our research results, electrospun nanoporous carbon fibers from natural polymers relatively higher specific capacitance than commercialized activated carbons (ACs). Furthermore, porous carbon nanofibers are cost-effective due to the simple synthetic route compared with that of conventional ACs. Additionally, they can be easily produced with large scale via well-developed 'electrospinning process'. Therefore, it is expected to build up the key functional technologies as well as original technologies.
