June 3, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Journal of Technology -- New research on Materials Science is the subject of a report. According to news reporting originating from Jiangsu, People's Republic of China, by VerticalNews correspondents, research stated, "MnFe2O4/graphene nanocomposite is synthesized and demonstrated as promising anode material for asymmetric supercapacitors."

Our news editors obtained a quote from the research from the Nanjing University of Science and Technology, "An asymmetric supercapacitor operating at 1.8 V is fabricated using MnFe2O4/graphene as anode and MnO2/carbon nanotube as cathode."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "The asymmetric supercapacitor shows an energy density of 25.9 Wh kg(-1) at a power density of 225W kg(-1) and an energy density of 18.1 Wh kg(-1) at a power density of 14.4 kW kg(-1), indicating an excellent power capability."
