What is it about?
This paper demonstrates a facile hydrothermal treatment method that can turn electro deposited manganese dioxide nano sheets into crystalline core-shell nanocrystals. The treated electrode exhibited improved capacitance and rate handling ability.
Why is it important?
Manganese dioxide is a commonly used materials for pseudo-capacitors but its limited electrical conductivity is a major hurdle that impedes its excellent performance in capacity and rate handling performance. Reducing its electrical resistance will enable the feasibility of manganese dioxide for electrochemical energy storage.
