Abstract

The convenient synthesis of the composite electrode with high supercapacitance performance plays an important role in practical application but is challenging. Herein, the carbon nanotubes (CNTs) coupled with low-crystalline sulfur and nitrogen co-doped NiCo-LDH (denoted as SN-NiCo-LDH) nanosheets array are grown on NiCo foam (NCF) substrate by two convenient steps of metal induced self-assembly and corrosion engineering, which present the advantages of operating at room-temperature and low preparation costs. Benefiting from the S–N co-doping and low-crystallinity of NiCo-LDH, the prepared SN-NiCo-LDH@CNTs@NCF electrode presents a topping charge capacity of 2470 C·g−1 (4.94 C·cm−2) at 5 mA·cm−2. Furthermore, the fabricated asymmetry supercapacitor (ASC) achieves an extraordinary energy density of 77 Wh·kg−1 (0.617 mWh·cm−2) at a power density of 438 W·kg−1 (3.5 mW·cm−2) and outstanding stability (91% capacity retention after 5000 cycles at 20 mA·cm−2). Impressively, the structure evolution of NiCo-LDH during the charge/discharge processes has been thoroughly elucidated by in-situ Raman spectra. Therefore, this work verifies a powerful strategy and practical value for preparing composite electrodes with high supercapacitance performance, and also provides guidance for the rational design of the smart electrodes.
