This study demonstrated the annealing-free synthesis of K-doped mixed-phase TiO2 (anatase and rutile, AR) nanofibers (K-TNF) on Ti foil at 150oC assisted by KOH(aq.)for electrochemical supercapacitors (ESCs) applications. The aggregated network and the average diameter of K-TNF have slightly decreased with the increase of KOH(aq.) concentrations from 1 to 3 M, while the amount of K-doping, Ti3+ interstitials, and ???OH functional groups was substantially increased. The TiO2 phase was entirely mixed of rutile and anatase, AR phase. All the K-TNF modified Ti electrodes (K-TNF/Ti) exhibited quasirectangular shaped cyclic voltammograms (CVs) in a wide potential range and the specific capacitance (Cs) for the optimal electrode with mixed AR phase TiO2 was ca. 70.30~95.18 mF/cm2,obtained from the CV (scan rate, 5mV/s) and chargedischarge (CD, current density, 50?A/cm2) measurements, respectively. The higher Cs for the optimal K-TNF/Ti electrode can be ascribed to the synergistic effect of mixed AR phase, a high percentage of K-doping (ca.20.20%), and Ti3+ interstitials (ca.18.20 %), respectively. The directional electron transport through the 1D channel as well as the ???OH functional groups on the K-TNF surface is also contribute to enhancing Cs. The K-TNF/Ti electrode discovered excellent stability with the Cs retention of ca. 95% and a very small change of internal series resistance (Rs) and charge transfer resistance (Rct) at the electrode/electrolyte interface after 3000-CD cycles.
