Lamborghini and the Massachusetts Institute of technology (MIT) have jointly patented an innovative material belonging to the class of metal-organic frameworks (MOF, metalorganic coordination polymers). It can significantly increase the working surface area of the electrodes. And they, in turn, can serve as the basis for a new generation of supercapacitors that can replace lithium-ion batteries in hybrids or electric cars. Such drives are yet radically inferior to batteries in energy density, but the new material is able to increase it by half. The main advantage of this technology over conventional battery — enormous power per unit self-weight capacitor remains unchanged.
