The major objective of this project was to make a positive impact on the development of supercapacitors that are vital to the production of electrical vehicles and low-maintenance power sources for military applications. The research takes advantage of novel ceramic precursors to elaborate new, economical synthetic methods for the preparation of electrode materials that are currently under investigation for use in electrochemical capacitors. It is anticipated that these precursors will allow the preparation of the desired materials via environmentally-friendly water-based processes that dont produce corrosive by-products. The research also targeted the identification of new, superior electrode materials based on an approach using water-based bimetallic or multimetallic precursors. The ceramic precursors developed in this investigation are also expected to impact other applications besides supercapacitors and any opportunity to make this research responsive to the materials needs especially electrodes of the military will be pursued.
