Supercapacitors are electrochemical energy storage devices in which the charge is accumulated through the adsorption of ions from an electrolyte on the surface of the electrode. Because of their large ionic concentrations, ionic liquids have widely been investigated for such applications. The main properties that have to be optimized are the electrochemical window, the electrical conductivity, and the interfacial capacitances. Ionic liquids allow a significant improvement of the former, but… Expand

Capacitance of Nanoporous Carbon-Based Supercapacitors Is a Trade-Off between the Concentration and the Separability of the Ions.
TLDR
Electrochemical measurements show that the capacitance is not significantly affected when switching from a pure ionic liquid to a conventional organic electrolyte using the same ionic species, and this result is interpreted as an increasing difficulty of separating ions of opposite charges when they are more concentrated.

TLDR
The results present a view of the ionic liquid-metal electrode interface having a very thin "double layer" structure where the ions form a single layer at the surface to screen the electrode charge, and raise many other fundamental questions as to the detailed nature of the interfacial structure and interpretations of both electrochemical and spectroscopic data.
