Electrochemical capacitors and supercapacitors that store energy using ion adsorption (electrochemical double layer capacitors) or fast faradaic surface reactions (pseudocapacitors). Within this framework, the main research of our group is related to the development of microporous materials with a high surface area of activated carbon, which could potentially increase the energy density of the system while maintaining the power and reducing the cost. Other lines of research include the development of new nanostructured pseudocapacitive materials (oxides, nitrides and polymers) and low dimensional nanocarbons (carbon nanotubes and graphene).
