Capacitive deionization is a second-generation water desalination technology in which porous electrodes (activated carbon materials) are used to temporarily store ions. In this technology, porous carbon used as electrodes have inherent limitations, such as low electrical conductivity, low capacitance, etc., and, as such, optimization of electrode materials by rational design to obtain hybrid electrodes is key towards improvement in desalination performance.
