Best practice paper on electrochemical desalination published in Cell Press Physical Science

Best practice paper on electrochemical desalination published in Cell Press Physical Science! In this paper, we shed light on technical how-to (and how-not-to) aspects of the promising future of ion-selective, energy-efficient water desalination through electrochemical methods. Including, but not limited to, capacitive deionization. We dive deep into the performance metrics commonly used for this approach […]

New paper published in Journal of Molecular Liquids on binary ionic liquid supercapacitors

New paper published in Journal of Molecular Liquids on binary ionic liquid supercapacitors. There is much to learn from simulation when it comes to understanding nanoscaled ion electrosorption of ions within carbon nanopores. Especially when it comes to the behavior of ionic-liquid-based supercapacitors which promise an extended potential window, and consequently, enhanced energy ratings. Ionic […]
