 Title: Fluid Coke Derived Activated Carbon as Electrode Material for Electrochemical double Layer Capacitor Authors: Hu, Chijuan Advisor: Jia, Charles Q.Kirk, Donald W. Department: Chemical Engineering and Applied Chemistry Keywords: fluid cokeactivated carbonelectrochemical double layer capacitorcapacitancecyclic voltammetryconstant current charge/discharge Issue Date: 24-Feb-2009 Abstract: An electrochemical double-layer capacitor (EDLC) is a potential buffer for current power and energy supply. In this work, activated carbon derived from fluid coke as a brand new electrode material was studied due to its high specific surface area (SSA) and large portion of mesopores. A suitable electrode material formula, current collector, and cell configuration were investigated to fabricate a testable system and ensure the reproducibility of measurements. Cyclic voltammetry (CV) and constant current charge/discharge (CD) techniques were used to characterize the performance of the electrode material, as well as to study its fundamental behaviour. A new procedure was established for quantifying the capacitance (Cc) of EDLC from CV which isolates the effect of internal resistance on the measured capacitance (CM). The specific capacitance of single electrode made of activated carbon (~1900 m2/g) with approximately 80% mesopores and macropores was able to reach 180 F/g at scan rate of 0.5mV/s.
