Graphene currently is the most studied material on the planet – this is especially true for charge storage and the results from many laboratories confirm its potential to change today’s energy-storage landscape.
Specifically, graphene could present several new features for energy-storage devices, such as smaller capacitors, completely flexible and even rollable energy-storage devices, transparent batteries, and high-capacity and fast-charging devices.
These and other features are explored in detail in a review article in Nature Reviews Materials (“Graphene for batteries, supercapacitors and beyond”).
Despite notable progress, the future of graphene in the energy-storage market is uncertain because of several challenges. The authors discuss and propose solutions to these challenges and also briefly discuss the potential of other emerging 2D materials for energy-storage applications.
