Abstract

The current energetic and environmental scenario has led the society to define new energy sources, as substitutes for fuels fossils. Moreover, arises, also, the necessity for new energy storage systems, in this context, the Electrochemical Capacitors (EC) fits. Differently of batteries, EC's retains energy from electrical double-layer charging and, at some situations, from fast faradaic reactions, called pseudocapacitive process. The amount of stored energy and the potency released by the devices are other differences between EC and batteries. While EC's possesses low energy density and high potency rates, batteries, otherwise, owns high power density and median potency. Nevertheless, with the advent of nanotechnology came new electrodes materials that flexibilized the threshold between EC's and batteries. Be an electrical double layer capacitor, a pseudo-capacitor, or a hybrid electrochemical capacitor, the use of nanostructured electrodes enabled the development EC's with energetic performance similar with batteries. This fact is due to, not exclusively, high specific surface area in nanostructured materials. At this study, employing electrochemical techniques we shall explore the limits between super-capacitors and batteries, and understand the origin of pseudo-capacitance in those materials and the electrochemical behavior of electrode material.
