Community for the latest research in new membrane materials.

Polyaninline (PANI) is an excellent electrode candidate for use in electrochemical energy conversion and storage devices. Films made from this polymer exhibit high electrical conductivity that are chemically stable and easy to dope/de-dope. Potential applications of PANI polymer films include electrical transportation and renewable energy.

Amanda Chen and Andy Couch will be presenting the use of the doping agent Polystyrene Sulfonic Acid and the binder Polyvinylidene Fluoride (dissolved in a solution of N-Methylpyrrolidinone and water) with PANI to enhance electrochemically polymerized PANI electrodes for comparison with chemically polymerized PANI material. The focus of the project is to fabricate an efficient PANI electrode for use in ultracapacitors. 

The virtual poster session will last 15 minutes, followed by 5 minutes of live discussion with the presenters.
