Powerful Paper

Researchers from the Linkoping University, Sweden have developed a ‘power paper’ comprising of nanocellulose and conductive polymer that has the ability to store energy. The paper, which is made from renewable cellulose and easily available polymer, is waterproof and light in weight and contains no dangerous chemicals such as those of regular batteries and capacitors.

A sheet of this paper is about 15 centimetres in diameter and a few tenths of a millimetre thick that can store energy similar to the super capacitors which are currently available in the market. Moreover, the sheet can be recharged for hundreds of times, each charge taking only a few seconds. Currently, thin films that act as capacitors are in existence. However, scientists have produced a material in three dimensions and thick sheets.

The power paper resembles a plastic paper, the material of which has set a new world record in simultaneous conductivity for ions and electrons, implying its exceptional capacity in storing energy.

The most wonderful and precious element of universe is the human life which can only be guided by the right knowledge and right attitude. So, here is an ocean of knowledge, both in English and Hindi encompassing every detail and each facet of human life which ‘one must know’ in order to grow and attain the summits of success. A team of around 200 dedicated members is working ceaselessly to turn such a colossal dream into reality. We are confident that this portal will help bring change in people across the world.
