Free-standing and highly conductive PEDOT nanowire films for high-performance all-solid-state supercapacitors

Abstract

Recently, flexible and portable supercapacitors have attracted increasing interest. PEDOT is a promising electrode material due to its high electrical conductivity, excellent environmental stability and cycling stability; however, the electrochemical performance of free-standing PEDOT films has not been reported yet. Herein, a simple and low-cost modified self-assembled micellar soft-template method followed with vacuum-assisted filtration has been developed to synthesize flexible and free-standing PEDOT nanowire (NW) film with very high electrical conductivity (~1340 S cm-1). The PEDOT NW film electrode with excellent flexibility has an excellent electrochemical performance [a specific capacitance of 667.5 mF/cm2 at 1 mA/cm2 and good cycling stability]. A flexible solid-state PEDOT NW film-based supercapacitor shows high specific capacitances of 413.5 mF/cm2 at 1 mA/cm2 and 306.0 mF/cm2 at 50 mA/cm2, an outstanding energy density of 48.3 μWh/cm2 at a power density of 0.22 mW/cm2 and a superior power density of 16.77 mW/cm2 at an energy density of 19.1 μWh/cm2. Desirable combination of excellent flexibility, high electrical conductivity, excellent electrochemical properties, and facile process scalability makes the PEDOT NW film particularly promising for portable and flexible electronics.
