A salt and battery: The combination of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) and an ionic liquid (IL) cross-linked network gel (CNG) allows the conventional three-phase reactive interface to be expanded to the whole cross-linked network (see picture). Thus, it integrates high specific energy and specific power with the feasibility of operating in ambient air.
