New Research Published in Nature Energy

In our article in Nature Energy (IF>60) we propose that there is a continuum between double-layer capacitance and Faradaic intercalation that is dependent on the specific confinement microenvironment. We also discuss open questions regarding electrochemical capacitance in porous and layered materials and how these lead to opportunities for future energy technologies. https://www.nature.com/articles/s41560-022-00993-z#citeas
