New review paper on gel electrolytes for functional energy storage devices published in Chemistry of Materials

New review article “Functional gel-based electrochemical energy storage” published Chemistry of Materials. This paper reviews the research field of gel polymer electrolytes (GPEs), which combine the ionic conductivity of liquid electrolytes with the mechanical stability of solid materials. GPEs are versatile materials in various electrochemical applications, including sensors, actuators, and energy storage devices. These quasi-solid materials can withstand significant mechanical stress, making them attractive for flexible and wearable electronics.
