Nanocrystalline Cellulose Confined in Amorphous Carbon Fibers as Capacitor Material for Efficient Energy Storage

The development of sustainable and renewable energy storage systems is a promising approach toward steady and reliable energy supply. Doha M. Sayed et al. studied cellulosic palm loofah fibers were used as a precursor to produce amorphous carbon (Am-C) with retained crystalline cellulosic planes via a simple activation method. The device showed extraordinary increasing capacitive behavior.
