Nano-structural design for energy storage devices depends on a variety of factors like as structure and properties of the
nano-materials. The recent development in nano-structural design has opened up new frontiers by creating new materials
and structures for efficient energy storage. In this research, we demonstrated the annealing-free synthesis of K-doped mixedphase
TiO2 (anatase and rutile, AR) 0D nanoparticles, 1D nanowires, 2D nanosheets, and 3D nanofoams (K-TNF) on Ti foil
at 150oC and 250oC assisted by KOH(aq.)for electrochemical supercapacitors (ESCs). The aggregated network and the average
diameter of K-TNF have slightly decreased with the increase of KOH(aq.) concentrations, 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 quasi-rectangular shaped cyclic voltammograms (CVs)
in a wide potential range and the specific capacitance (Cs) for the optimal electrode with mixed AR phase TiO2 obtained. 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 also contributes 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.
