Abstract

Supercapacitors are efficient and developing energy storage devices. The main focus of this work was on the preparation of reduced graphene oxide supported boron nitride doped-nickel hydroxide [rGO/BN/Ni(OH)2] nanocomposites through a hydrothermal approach, for studying their electrochemical behaviour and specific capacitance by fabricating supercapacitor devices. Pristine BN, BN/Ni(OH)2 and rGO/Ni(OH)2 nanocomposites were also prepared and their use as supercapacitor electrode materials was studied. The structural and morphological properties were characterized using various analytical tools. SEM images showed a spherical shape with a marigold flower-like morphology. The electrochemical beh..
