Doped CuCrO2: A possible material for supercapacitor applications

Publication date: April 2020Source: Materials Science in Semiconductor Processing, Volume 109Author(s): Ramesh Manickam, J. Yesuraj, Krishnendu BiswasAbstractDelafossites, owing to their layered structural characteristics are mostly known for thermoelectric and Lithium ion battery applications. In the present paper we explore the possibility of using such a delafossite oxide viz. CuCrO2 for use as a supercapacitor material. In this regard, multivalent doping at the Cr site of CuCrO2 delafossite compound was carried out to study the effect on its electrochemical properties. The phase formation and morphological studies carried out by X-ray diffraction and Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) techniques respectively reveal the presence of a single phase of CuCr1-x(MgTi)x/2O2 (x = 0, 0.05, 0.1, 0.15) with appropriate composition. The electrochemical properties of all the compositions were examined by cyclic voltammetry (CV) using a three-electrode system. The CV studies show an increase in specific capacitance with increasing dopant concentration. The increased electrical conductivity with dopant concentration is the reason for enhanced specific capacitance which is supported by the electrochemical impedance spectroscopic studies. The highest doped composition x = 0.15, gave a specific capacitance value of 248 Fg-1 with the scan rate of 50 mVs−1 and showed good cycle stability up to 2000 cycles.

Similar to many Termitidae, this species contains a mixed segment in the intestine, an anatomic distinct region composed of both mesenteric and proctodeal tissues. In Neocapritermes spp., a pair of intestinal protrusions referred to as mesenteric sacs are associated with the mixed segment. In the present study, with the aid of ...

A passenger on a cruise ship that was denied entry from several countries amid concerns about the spread of a deadly coronavirus was confirmed to be infected with the novel coronavirus after she and her husband disembarked when the ship was allowed to dock in Cambodia. The confirmation of an infection on the ship has raised concerns about the virus’ further spread, and authorities are scrambling to confirm if other passengers might be infected, potentially spreading the virus to countries it has not yet reached. The 83-year-old American woman, who had been on board the Holland America Line ship the Westerdam, was s...
