2_08i/2012Lithium-Ion Batteries: A Stretchable Polymer–Carbon Nanotube Composite Electrode for Flexible Lithium-Ion Batteries: Porosity Engineering by Controlled Phase Separation (Adv. Energy Mater. 8/2012)

The realization of bendable and stretchable electronic systems requires the development of practical flexible energy-storage devices. On page 976, Y. S. Jung, K. Kang, and co-workers report the fabrication of highly porous and stretchable polymer-carbon nanotube composites for the application for flexible lithium-ion batteries. Because the electrolytes cannot effectively penetrate into the polydimethylsiloxane-based nano-composites, interconnected pores are artificially formed by inducing controlled phase separation. The optimization of the pore size and the volume fraction increases the capacity by nearly seven-fold compared to a nonporous nanocomposite.
