CQuest CNS present an open graphene-like 2D carbon lattice structure with high surface area and varied morphology featuring a proliferation of macroporous, mesoporous and microporous structures.
For energy storage, these characteristics allow for ready transmission and ‘intercalation’ of ion charges, giving CNS high capacity and coulombic efficiency when used in an electrode. CNS can maintain their performance over a wide range of operating temperatures and provide for greater safety due to a lower risk of over-heating and thermal runaway. Devices using CNS in place of currently used graphite and activated carbons can demonstrate significant increases in energy density, rate capability and life-cycle, work better in both low T and high T applications, and still reduce costs. Additionally, the open, varied, and interconnected structure of CNS can provide an excellent platform for developing new and better device architectures and chemistries.
