Pseudocapacitive energy storage in supercapacitor electrodes differs significantly from the electrical double-layer mechanism of porous carbon materials, which requires a change from conventional thinking when choosing appropriate electrolytes. Here we show how simply changing the solvent of an electrolyte system can drastically influence the pseudocapacitive charge storage of the two-dimensional titanium carbide, Ti3C2 (a representative member of the MXene family). Measurements of the charge… 

Electrochemical Behavior of Ti3C2Tx MXene in Environmentally Friendly Methanesulfonic Acid Electrolyte.

A more environmentally friendly alternative acidic electrolyte, methanesulfonic acid (MSA CH3SO3H) is proposed and it exhibits excellent cycle stability with retention of nearly 100% over 10,000 cycles, and in-situ X-ray diffraction analysis reveals the intercalation charge storage mechanism.
