In situ preparation of MgCo2O4 nanosheets on Ni-foam as a binder-free electrode for high performance hybrid supercapacitors

Abstract

A binder-free, MgCo2O4 nanosheet-like architecture was prepared on Ni-foam using a hydrothermal method. MgCo2O4/Ni-foam was characterized by X-ray diffraction, field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM), and transmission electron microscopy techniques. The FESEM image revealed a nanosheet array-like architecture. The MgCo2O4 nanosheets grown on Ni-foam exhibited the maximum specific capacity of 947 C g−1 at a specific current of 2 A g−1. Approximately 96% of the specific capacity was retained from the maximum specific capacity after 5000 continuous charge–discharge cycles. This hybrid device exhibited a maximum specific capacity of 52 C g−1 at a specific current of 0.5 A g−1, and also exhibited a maximum specific energy of 12.99 W h kg−1 at a specific power of 448.7 W kg−1. These results confirmed that the binder-free MgCo2O4 nanosheets grown on Ni-foam are a suitable positive electrode material for hybrid supercapacitors.
