IISER Team Makes Supercapacitors Of Graphene To Replace Car Batteries - Batteries Energy Featured Graphene

 

PUNE: A team of scientists from Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER) Pune has developed a graphene-based supercapacitor that has a better capacity and power and offers a stable, non-toxic alternative for .

The researchers, who believe the supercapacitor will have multiple uses, have applied for a patent.

Electric vehicles have been long thought of as the future of the automobile industry. With coal, oil depleting, the race to find alternative sources is fast-paced. The car’s is vital but due to the toxic lead used, efforts are on to replace batteries with supercapacitors.

Leading a team of 10 students of graduates, post-graduates and PhD students and post-docs Nirmalya Bhallav has been working on the graphene-based supercapacitor, a device that stores and delivers energy, for the past two years.
