Described here are the first simulations of electric double-layer capacitors based on carbon nanotube forests modeled fully at a molecular level. The computations determine single-electrode capacitances in the neighborhood of 80 F/g, in agreement with experimental capacitances of electric double-layer capacitors utilizing carbon nanotube forests or carbide-derived carbons as electrode material. The capacitance increases modestly with the decrease of the pore size through radii greater than 1 nm… CONTINUE READING
