Abstract

A proof of concept to enhance the specific capacitance and energy density of a supercapacitor has been demonstrated wherein reversible 1e- transfer redox chemistry of cations of ionic liquids ([EMIM][EtSO4] and [MIM][HSO4]) which acted as both solvent and electrolyte has been utilized. Outstanding specific capacitance and energy densities in the range of 420-710 F/g and 580-920 Wh/kg, respectively, have been obtained for carbon-based nanomaterials.
