Due to the use of organic electrolytes (with extended operating voltage) it will be also possible to obtain the high energy values. Performing a series of physicochemical and electrochemical studies aims to determine the most favorable conditions for the production of new electrode materials (i.e., exfoliation method, the parameters of the process) as well as to determine the optimum working parameters of these materials for energy storage and conversion.
