The high power density, long life cycle and very short charging time make supercapaictor a desirable energy
stirage system.1 One of the limitations, however, is their low energy density as compared to the batteries.2 The
best approach so far to overcome this problem is to design hybrid electrodes by comibining the capacitor type and
battery type materials.3 Such hybrid electrodes use carbon materials as a conductive backbone and the transition
metal oxides as an electroactive components.4 As a result, a synergistically high performance is obtained which
originates from the high conductivity and long life cycle of carbon materials and the high specific capacitance of
TMOs.5 Herein, we report two hybrid ternary electrode systems by using graphene-CNTs and graphene-CNCs as
conductive matrix and combining them with bimorph Akaganeite (?-FeOOH) and Manganese dioxide (?-MnO2)
nanoparticles respectively via a simple hydothermal self assembly method. When used as electrode in symmetirc
and asymmetric spercapacitors (2V) in an aqeous electrolyte system, the hybrid electrodes gave an excellent energypower
profile, high specific capaictance and remarkable cylic stability of upto 99.8% after 10,000 galvanostatic
chargedischarge cycles. This high performance is attibuted to a dominant capacitive charge storage mechanism and
the well-structuring of the hybrid electrodes. This system approcah can be useful in desiging high performance
electrodes for long life supercapacitor systems with high energy and power desnsities.
