Abstract:

Numerous functionalized carbon nanotube materials, utilizing a variety of means, were prepared and characterized with respect to their charge storage capability. These materials exploit the high surface area and dc conductivity of carbon nanotubes, while introducing a pseudo-capacitive charge storage mechanism through judicious functionalization. The effect on the capacitance of functionalizing with conjugated polymers, conducting polymers, and ruthenium oxide, are reported here. Through functionalization at the nanoscale level, improvements to capacitance were realized.
