In order to support electroportable technology systems and electrified mobility for long periods of time, it is necessary to develop energy sources of high-power and high electrical charge storage capacity. Electrochemical energy conversion and storage devices are potential alternatives to meet this demand, prioritizing eco-friendliness, sustainability with reduction or zero carbon emissions. The vehicle electrification process is irreversible. Indeed, the market for energy storage devices that will power these vehicles has increased almost 20 times the production of lithium-ion batteries in recent years. The growth of the lithium-ion battery market promotes the research and development of materials with high energy storage capabilities. New 2D materials have recently emerged: MXenes, dual ceramic and metallic materials, with high mechanical and chemical stability, in addition to high conductivity and high energy storage capacity. They are compounds obtained from transition metals with carbon or nitrogen and surface elements (O, OH, F), capable of facilitating the transport of small ions in their structure. In order to produce an energy device with high electrochemical performance material for future application in small appliances and vehicular electrification process, this project proposal aims in partnership with the University of Belgrade, the fundamental electrochemical study followed by assembly and testing of supercapacitors and batteries with Nb-MXenes.
