What is it about?

Here, we report an efficient strategy by which a significantly enhanced electrode–electrolyte interface in an electrode for supercapacitor application could be accomplished by allowing in situ polymer gel electrolyte generation inside the nanopores of the electrodes.

Why is it important?

Because the nature of the electrode–electrolyte interface is the major performance-determining factor in the case of many electrochemical energy storage/conversion systems, along with the supercapacitors, the developed process can also find applications in preparing electrodes for the devices such as lithium-ion batteries, metal–air batteries, polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cells, etc.
