Paper Title:
Solvothermal Synthesis of Nanostructured Flakes α-Ni(OH)2 Microspheres for Electrochemical Capacitors
  Abstract

Nanostructured flakes α-Ni(OH)2 microspheres were successfully synthesized by a facile solvothermal method using sodium dodecyl sulfate as a soft template and urea as a hydrolysis-controlling agent. The obtained products were characterized by Thermogravimetric analysis (TGA), X-ray diffraction (XRD), and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Electrochemical properties studies were carried out using cyclic voltammetry, galvanostaitc charge/discharge method, respectively. The results exhibited that the α-Ni(OH)2 single electrode had high specific capacitance in KOH electrolyte. A maximum specific capacitance of the α-Ni(OH)2 single electrode was up to 2398F/g in 6M KOH electrolyte concentration with 0 to 0.4V potential at 4mA/cm2 current density. Furthermore, the effects of the heat treatment temperatures on the electrochemical capacitance of the α-Ni(OH)2 electrodes were investigated.
