Pyrolized polyacrylonitrile as a feasible electrode material for electrochemical power sources

In the current paper electrospun nanofiber mats were derived from polyacrylonitrile (PAN). The temperature influence on the volumetric and surface composition of the resulting pyropolymers was studied by means of elemental analysis and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy.

Электрохимические свойства композитных электродов, содержащих наночастицы солей меди

The energetic properties of the new composite electrode materials suitable for electrochemical capacitors were investigated. Composite electrodes were made using Norit A activated carbon and synthesized sparingly soluble copper salts such as copper iodide(I) and hexacyanoferrates (II), etc. (III). The composition of the salts was confirmed by elemental analysis and the particle size was determined by the Scherrer equation using the data of X­-ray phase analysis.
