Abstract Metal-organic framework (MOF)-based electrode materials have become a hot subject for supercapaitors. Herein, Ni-MOFs grown on Co nanoparticles modified carbon nanofibers (CNFs) (C-Co@MOF) are prepared via a facile process. Interestingly, the presence of Co nanoparticles in CNFs not only boosts the hybridization of CNF and MOFs, but also releases Co ions to participate in the growth of MOF, leading to a favorable electrochemical behavior. In detail, the specific capacitance of C-Co@MOF reaches 1201.6 F g-1 that exceeds those of C-M@MOFs (M=Ni, V, Mo, Mn, Fe, Cu and Zn) and CNF@MOF. More importantly, an asymmetric solid-state supercapacitor is assembled using C-Co@MOF and nitrogen-doped carbon nanotubes derived from polyaniline as positive and negative electrode materials, respectively, representing a high energy density of 37.0 Wh kg-1 and outstanding durability. This work highlights the superiority of electrospun CNFs modified by metal nanoparticles for the growth of MOF, showing great potential for electrochemical energy storage and conversion applications.

Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) and covalent organic frameworks (COFs) attracted enormous attention in recent years. Recently, MOF@COF are emerging as hybrid architectures combining the unique features of the individual components to enable the generation of materials displaying novel physicochemical properties. Herein we report an unprecedented use of aza-Diels-Alder cycloaddition reaction as postsynthetic modification of MOF@COF-LZU1, to generate aza-MOFs@COFs hybrid porous materials with exte...

Electrospun carbon nanofibers (CNFs), with one-dimensional (1D) morphology, tunable size, mechanical flexibility, and functionalities by themselves and those that can be added onto them, have witnessed the intensive development and extensive applications in energy storage and conversion, such as supercapacitors, batteries, and fuel cells. However, conventional solid CNFs often suffer from a rather poor electrical conductivity and low specific surface area, compared with the graphene and carbon n...

Abstract For supercapacitors, development of electrode materials with superior electrochemical performance is urgently needed. Herein, we synthesized novel nickel cobalt sulfide (NiCo2S4) hollow cages as electrode materials for supercapacitors. The NiCo2S4 hollow cages possess a hollow interior and mesoporous structure, which could shorten ion diffusion distance and provide plentiful electroactive sites. Thanks to the appealing structures, the NiCo2S4 hollow cages exhibit an appealing capacitanc...

Abstract The three-dimensional porous carbon (3DPC)/Co3O4 composites were prepared via pyrolysis of 3D graphene/Co-MOF precursor. The rich carbon content, amorphous state and hierarchical porous structure remarkably accelerated electron and ion transport. The oxygen-deficient Co3O4 state provided more active sites. Consequently, the 3DPC/Co3O4 electrode delivered enhanced capacitive performance owing to these advantages, which exhibited a high specific capacitance of 423 F g-1 at 1 A g-1, good r...

The p-d conjugated framework exhibits typical semiconducting behavior with a high electrical conductivity of ca. 1.0 Sm1 at room temperature. Benefiting from the good electrical conductivity and the excellent redox reversibility of both ligand and copper centers, Cu-DBC electrode features superior capacitor perfor...
