Packed with energy: Amorphous covalent triazine-based frameworks were used as a cathode material, with the aim of developing an energy storage principle that can deliver a 2–3 times higher specific energy than current batteries with a high rate capability. The material undergoes a unique Faradaic reaction, as it can be present in both a p-doped and an n-doped state (see picture).
