Active Materials for EDLCs

  1. Jun 24, 2013 #1
    Electric double layer capacitor is charge storage device which using the mechanism of forming electric double layer on the interface between electrolyte and electrode. What is the requirement for active materials that used for electrode, is it require high conductivity and good chemical stability? then why carbon based materials such as activated carbon and carbon nanotube will be suitable? carbon is not conductive right...or only non-conductive material can used for active material for EDLC electrode's active material to form the electric double layer?
