Abstract

A uniform nickel film could be coated on crown ether-modified carbon nanotubes (c-CNTs) by electroless deposition. The products CNT@Ni and c-CNT@Ni were oxidized and compressed into CNT@Ni@(NiOH)2 and c-CNT@Ni@(NiOH)2 discs, respectively. The areal and volumetric capacitances of CNT@Ni@(NiOH)2 and c-CNT@Ni@(NiOH)2 were compared and c-CNT@Ni@(NiOH)2 showed a lower resistance.
