Organoaqueous electrolytes for cold winter

What is it about?

A novel organoaqueous electrolyte that can work in carbon nanotubes based supercapacitor at temperatures down to - 60 degC.

Why is it important?

First demonstration of an organoaqueous electrolyte for carbon nanotubes based supercapacitor to work at sub-zero temperatures, and also the effect of calcium ion on charge storage.
