Electrochemical Energy Storage

Electrochemical Energy Storage with Graphene-Enabled Materials

Amongst the myriad applications foreseen for graphene, exploitation in electrochemical energy storage with supercapacitors or batteries ranks as one of the most prominent. Contributes to de-carbonising the energy supply - storage for renewable energy.

Prof Ian Kinloch

My research focuses on polymeric and carbon (graphene and nanotubes  and related nanomaterials. The research takes the science from the controlled growth of the nanomaterials through to their processing and applications. My research on applications is on polymer-nanocarbon composites, electrodes and the bio-nano interface.
