Effect of 2D MXene material on Electrochemical energy storage for Lithium-Ion Batteries and Supercapacitors

Supercapacitors with high energy-density, power, and long cycle-life have potential to outperform traditional batteries owing to their fast charging-discharging speed. This project aims to investigate a new class of two-dimensional materials, i.e. MXenes, as high-capacity pseudocapacitive material. Most of the current understanding of MXenes comes from titanium carbides whereas other materials are less-understood which will…
