Article Preview

We use carbon aerogels and nanofoams as conductive, ultraporous platforms onto which ultrathin (<5-nm thick) conformal poly(o-methoxyaniline) coatings are applied using self-limiting electrodeposition. The electroactive polymer coating is incorporated to increase the overall chargestorage capacity of the resulting hybrid electrode structure. Nitrogen-sorption techniques are used to characterize the carbon nanoarchitecture pore structure before and after application of the polymer coating. The subtle modifications of the carbon nanoarchitecture with the polymer coating are correlated with the resulting electrochemical properties, as determined by cyclic voltammetry and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy.
