Activated microwave-exfoliated graphite oxide combined with an ionic liquid can be used to make an enhanced capacitor. Supercapacitors, also called ultracapacitors or electrochemical capacitors, store electrical charge on high-surface-area conducting materials. Their widespread use is limited by their low energy storage density and relatively high effective series resistance. Using chemical activation of exfoliated graphite oxide, we synthesized a porous carbon with a Brunauer-Emmett-Teller… Expand

TLDR
Manganese dioxide particles 2-3 nm in size were deposited onto a porous "activated microwave expanded graphite oxide" (aMEGO) carbon scaffold via a self-controlled redox process to produce capacitors that yielded a specific capacitance of 256 F/g and a capacitance retention of 87.7% after 1000 cycles in 1 M H(2)SO(4).

Graphene Double-Layer Capacitor with ac Line-Filtering Performance
TLDR
Graphene nanosheets have a preponderance of exposed edge planes that greatly increases charge storage as compared with that of designs that rely on basal plane surfaces, and capacitors constructed with these electrodes could be smaller than the low-voltage aluminum electrolyte capacitors that are typically used in electronic devices.
