Inorganic nanostructured materials for high performance electrochemical supercapacitors

Author affiliations

Abstract

Electrochemical supercapacitors (ES) are a well-known energy storage system that has high power density, long life-cycle and fast charge–discharge kinetics. Nanostructured materials are a new generation of electrode materials with large surface area and short transport/diffusion path for ions and electrons to achieve high specific capacitance in ES. This mini review highlights recent developments of inorganic nanostructure materials, including carbon nanomaterials, metal oxide nanoparticles, and metal oxide nanowires/nanotubes, for high performance ES applications.
