On the other hand, supercapacitors having potassium perchlorate as electrolyte shows specific capacitance of 2.62x10-4 mF.cm-3 which is less than zinc perchlorate having a specific capacitance of 1.24x10-2 mF.cm-3 due to its bigger ionic size which causes a restriction in their flow and as result, potassium shows less electrical properties and having a less charge-discharge area.
The comparison of the mechanical properties of these samples (Table-2) showed that the flexural strength and flexural modulus of the supercapacitor, having lithium perchlorate salt, were not very much less than the other two specimens having potassium perchlorate and zinc chloride.

These values were based on a dated acute exposure study that showed that single doses of potassium perchlorate caused release of iodide from thyroids of patients with Graves disease, an autoimmune condition that results in hyperthyroidism (Stanbury and Wyngaarden 1952).
Similarly, low circulating concentrations of [T.sub.4] and [T.sub.3] have been reported in fish exposed to potassium perchlorate at 100-500 mg/L (Manzon and Youson 1997; Manzon et al.
