Abstract:

Carbon of various types are extensively used in battery and fuel cell applications an electronic conductor, a catalyst for specific reactions, a support for other catalysts and as a high surface area electrode affording a large total capacity capacitor batteries. This report considers the basic properties of carbons and graphites of importance to these applications including the electronic and solid state properties pore structure of activated carbons intrinsic surface electronic and electrochemical properties surface chemical groups and acidbase properties redox reactions on carbongraphite surfaces electrocatalytic properties of carbon surfaces for various electrode reactions Chemically modified carbongraphite surfaces electrochemical oxidation of carbon in battery and fuel cell applications.
