MXene: A Potential Candidate for Yarn Supercapacitors


The increasing developments in wearable electronics demand for compatible power sources such as yarn supercapacitors (YSCs) that can perform well in a limited footprint. MXene nanosheets, which are recently shown in the literature to have ultra-high volumetric capacitance are used here for the fabrication of YSCs in order to identify their potential merit and performance in YSCs. With the aid of a conductive binder (PEDOT-PSS), YSCs with high mass loading of MXene is demonstrated. These MXene-based YSCs show excellent device performance and stability even under bending and twisting. This work demonstrates that MXene is a promising candidate for YSCs and its further development can lead to flexible power sources with sufficient performance for powering miniaturized and/or wearable electronics.
