Patrice Simon is Distinguished Professor at Université Paul Sabatier (Toulouse,France). His research activities are focused onto the modification of  material / electrolyte interfaces in electrodes for electrochemical energy storage devices, such as supercapacitors (electrochemical capacitors). His work aims at better understanding the transport and adsorption or insertion of ions from an electrolyte into porous materials used as electrode materials (carbon, metallic oxides, graphene, MXenes...). Patrice Simon received several awards and distinctions (2015 Silver medal of the CNRS, 2015 RUSNANOPRIZE with Prof Y. Gogotsi . He is Senior member of the Institut Universitaire de France (2017).


In the past decade, lot of attention has been put on electrochemical double layer capacitors (EDLCs), also known as supercapacitors, since they are one of the most promising electrochemical energy storage devices for high... [ view full abstract ]
