The video shows parts of the simulation results in a change/discharge cycle for a conventional capacitive deionization cell.  The model incorporates the following electrochemical process: electrosorption of electrical double layer, leakage current due to faradic reactions, immobile surface charge density as a result of carbon corrosion, and repulsion of co-ions during electrosorption process.


The code is developed by Xia Shang under supervision of Kyle C. Smith in University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

Model calibration and validation is performed by Xia Shang under supervision of Roland C. Cusick in University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
