(398ay) Electrical Energy Generation Via Reversible Chemical Doping on Carbon Nanotube Fibers
AIChE Annual Meeting

Chemically modified carbon nanotube fibersÂ enable unique power sources driven entirely by a chemical potential gradient. Electrical current (11.9 Î¼A mgâ1) and potential (525 mV) are reversibly produced by localized acetonitrile doping under ambient conditions. An inverse length-scaling of the maximum power asÂ Lâ1.03Â that creates specific powers as large as 30.0 kW kgâ1Â highlights the potential for microscale energy generation.
