Title: Iodine encapsulation in CNTs and its application for electrochemical capacitor

Abstract

We report the experimental results for new type electrochemical capacitor using iodine redox reaction in single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs). It was found that the energy density of the present redox capacitor using SWCNTs is almost three times larger than that of the normal electric double layer capacitor.

  • A poly(1,5-diaminoanthraquinone) [poly(DAAQ)], which is a conducting polymer condensed with 1,4-benzoquinone, was studied electrochemically and was proposed as a new category of electrochemical capacitor material. In common nonaqueous media, the poly(DAAQ) showed two sets of reproducible redox couples for repeated cycles. The potential window of the material was in the range from ca. {minus}1.5 to +1.0 V (vs. Ag/AgCl). In situ UV-visible spectroscopy suggested that the redox couple observed around {minus}1.5 V is responsible for the quinone group and that around +1.0 V is due to the {pi}-conjugated system. The poly(DAAQ) showed high conductivity (0.3--2.0 {Omega}{sup {minus}1} cm{sup {minus}1}) overmore » a wide range of potential ({minus}2.0 to 0.8 V), which suggests extension of the {pi}-conjugated system. It is proposed here that one can construct an electrochemical capacitor device by utilizing poly(DAAQ) as both positive and negative electrodes. The authors constructed the poly(DAAQ)/poly(DAAQ) electrochemical capacitor for test purposes. The poly(DAAQ)/poly(DAAQ) electrochemical capacitor exhibited high specific energy (25--46 Wh/kg) and high specific power (10,200--30,500 W/kg) at discharge rates from 30 to 90 C.« less
  • Highlights: • A pre-treatment process is used to prepared N-doped carbon from waste biomass. • Waste tobaccos, which are limited for the disposal, are used as the raw materials. • The product shows a specific surface area and nitrogen content. • Its electrochemical performance is better than commercial activated carbon. • Its CO{sub 2} sorption performance is also better than commercial activated carbon. - Abstract: Preparing nitrogen-doped porous carbons directly from waste biomass has received considerable interest for the purpose of realizing the atomic economy. In this study, N-doped porous carbons have been successfully prepared from waste tobaccos (WT) bymore » a simple pre-treatment process. The sample calcinated at 700 °C (WT-700) shows a micro/meso-porous structures with a BET surface area of 1104 m{sup 2} g{sup −1} and a nitrogen content of ca. 19.08 wt.% (EDS). Performance studies demonstrate that WT-700 displays 170 F g{sup −1} electrocapacitivity at a current density of 0.5 A g{sup −1} (in 6 M KOH), and a CO{sub 2} capacity of 3.6 mmol g{sup −1} at 0 °C and 1 bar, and a selectivity of ca. 32 for CO{sub 2} over N{sub 2} at 25 °C. Our studies indicate that it is feasible to prepare N-enriched porous carbons from waste natural crops by a pre-treatment process for potential industrial application.« less
  • Carbon nanotube (CNT) is a very attractive material for the development of biosensors because of its capability to provide strong electrocatalytic activity and minimize surface fouling of the sensors. This article reviews our recent developments of oxidase- and dehydrogenase-amperometric biosensors based on the immobilization of CNTs, the co-immobilization of enzymes on the CNTs/Nafion or the CNT/Teflon composite materials, or the attachment of enzymes on the controlled-density aligned CNT-nanoelectrode arrays. The excellent electrocatalytic activities of the CNTs on the redox reactions of hydrogen peroxide, nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NADH), and homocysteine have been demonstrated. Successful applications of the CNT-based biosensors reviewed hereinmore » include the low-potential detections of glucose, organophosphorus compounds, and alcohol.« less
  • Fe{sub 3}O{sub 4}–CNTs nanocomposites with a particle size of ∼80 nm have been synthesized through an organic-free hydrothermal synthesis strategy by using Sn(OH){sub 6}{sup 2−} as an inorganic dispersant, and served as anode materials of lithium ion batteries. Nano-sized and micro-sized Fe{sub 3}O{sub 4} without CNTs have also been prepared for comparison. The cycle performances of the as-obtained Fe{sub 3}O{sub 4} are highly size-dependent. The Fe{sub 3}O{sub 4}–CNTs nanocomposites can deliver reversible discharge capacity of ∼700 mA h/g at a current density of 50 mA/g after 50 cycles. The discharge capacity of the micro-sized Fe{sub 3}O{sub 4} decreased to 171more » mA h/g after 50 cycles. Our work not only provides new insights into the inorganic dispersant assisted hydrothermal synthesis of metal oxides nanocrystals but also gives guidance for finding new nanocomposites as anode materials of lithium ion batteries. - Graphical abstract: Fe{sub 3}O{sub 4}–CNTs nanocomposites have been prepared through an inorganic dispersant assisted hydrothermal synthesis strategy, and served as anode materials of lithium ion batteries with enhanced performance. - Highlights: • Sn(OH){sub 6}{sup 2−} is a good inorganic dispersant for the hydrothermal synthesis of nano Fe{sub 3}O{sub 4}. • The cycle performances of nano Fe{sub 3}O{sub 4} anode are much better than that of micro Fe{sub 3}O{sub 4} anode. • Compositing CNTs can enhance the cycle performances of nano Fe{sub 3}O{sub 4} anode.« less
