AbstractTo design electrochemical interfaces for efficient electric-chemical energy interconversion, it is critical to reveal the electric double layer (EDL) structure and relate it with electrochemical activity; nonetheless, this has been a long-standing challenge. Of particular, no molecular-level theories have fully explained the characteristic two peaks arising in the potential-dependence of the EDL capacitance, which is sensitively dependent on the EDL structure. We herein demonstrate that our first-principles-based molecular simulation reproduces the experimental capacitance peaks. The origin of two peaks emerging at anodic and cathodic potentials is unveiled to be an electrosorption of ions and a structural phase transition, respectively. We further find a cation complexation gradually modifies the EDL structure and the field strength, which linearly scales the carbon dioxide reduction activity. This study deciphers the complex structural response of the EDL and highlights its catalytic importance, which bridges the mechanistic gap between the EDL structure and electrocatalysis.

The physics of quantum many-body systems have been studied using bulk correlated materials, and recently, moiré superlattices formed by atomic bilayers have appeared as a novel platform in which the carrier concentration and the band structures are highly tunable. In this brief review, we introduce an intermediate platform between those systems, namely, a band-filling- and bandwidth-tunable electric double-layer transistor based on a real organic Mott insulator κ-(BEDT-TTF)2Cu[N(CN)2]Cl. In the proximity of the bandwidth-control Mott transition at half filling, both electron and hole doping induced superconductivity (with almost identical transition temperatures) in the same sample. The normal state under electric double-layer doping exhibited non-Fermi liquid behaviors as in many correlated materials. The doping levels for the superconductivity and the non-Fermi liquid behaviors were highly doping-asymmetric. Model calculations based on the anisotropic triangular lattice explained many phenomena and the doping asymmetry, implying the importance of the noninteracting band structure (particularly the flat part of the band).
