Abstract This paper reports on the ageing mechanisms in symmetric, carbon/carbon electrochemical capacitors operating with a 1 mol⋅L−1 LiNO3 aqueous electrolyte. The carbon electrodes were subjected to a constant polarization protocol (i.e., floating) at various voltages and were analysed post-mortem by N2 sorption at 77 K, Raman spectroscopy, Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS), and elemental analysis. This approach allowed real capacitor performance… CONTINUE READING
