    I am making an experimental circuit to charge a 60mF capacitor to 100V DC. My problem is that I only have a 50V dc supply available. Could I use a dc-dc converter? Could anyone suggest a circuit that will convert the 50V to 100V dc. By the way, the 60mF capacitor should be fully charged after like 12secs. Any suggestion is appreciated. Thanks

    Do you mean 60 microfarads (60uF)?

    What's the need for charging a cap to 100v? What does the rest of your project entail?

    You need to be aware that when you get over 50v or so, the voltages and power involved can be quite dangerous, and should be avoided unless absolutely necessary.
