Abstract

Supercapacitors are energy storage devices emerging as one of the promising energy storage devices in the future energy technology. In this perspective, rapid progress is made in the development of fundamental and applied aspects of supercapacitors. Various techniques have been developed specifically to estimate the specific capacitance. Numerous efforts were made in the literature to increase the specific capacitance value of the electrode materials. The electrode materials which have unique structural and electrochemical capacitance properties, such as high capacity and cyclic stability showed great supercapacitors performances. Recently, there are much new types of electrode materials were developed to play an important role in the capacitance behavior. In this review, we focused on the applications of various nanostructured electrode materials like carbon nanomaterials, metal oxides and conducting polymer towards highly efficient supercapacitors. © 2014 The Authors.
