Electrochemical Double-Layer Capacitors Based on Activated Bamboo-Shaped Carbon Nanotubes
Bamboo-shaped carbon nanotubes (BCNTs) have been synthesized by chemical vapor deposition method. The activated BCNTs after simple ball milling and KOH etching are used as polarizable electrodes in electric double layer capacitor (EDLC). Our results show that the specific capacity of BCNTs can be improved by the activation treatment.
