Additional Research - Superdielectrics Ltd and Metal Organic Framework (MOF)
Delivered December 30, 2019. Contributor: Jana C.
To obtain additional research on Superdielectrics Ltd and companies using Metal Organic Framework (MOF) for batteries and supercapacitors.
Superdielectrics is a UK based
They have developed a supercapacitor material that has the ability to
store electricity in large amounts
The supercapacitor materials do
not use rare elements
, is cheap to manufacture, and will not catch fire since it is water-based.
Superdielectrics has been
working with the Universities
of Surrey and Bristol to test whether the polymers are able to work in real-world conditions.
They claim that the material they have developed could reach energy densities of
approximately 180 kilowatts per hour
In effect, this would mean, supercapacitors would be on the
same level as lithium-ion batteries.
It would also mean having safer electric vehicles.
Electric cars would
not need to be recharged
every other stop and essentially, charging time would be shortened.
The company has been backed by Rolls-Royce and both entered into a
collaboration agreement since 2018
Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs)
MOFs are porous materials with
high surface areas
, turnable pore sizes and controllable structures.
They can be used to
store gas, for drug delivery
, in catalysis and sensors.
It can be used for
clean energy including fuel cells
, hydrogen production,
, solar cells, and SCs.
MOFs can be applied in any of three ways, to store charges, to
produce metal-oxides and by "pyrolyzing
." In the case of the latter, this is to produce carbons and improve its capacitance.
Automobil Lamborghini and MIT
have developed a MOF-based material that is new to the market. It will serve as the first of its kind and paving the way for new generations of supercapacitors.
Only the project owner can select the next research path.
