Abstract

Carbon nanotube (CNT) film electrodes were fabricated by a novel process involving the electrostatic spray deposition (ESD) of a CNT solution. Acid treated CNTs were dispersed in an aqueous solvent through sonication and then the CNT solution was electrostatically sprayed onto a metallic substrate by the ESD method. The CNT film electrodes showed well-entangled and interconnected porous structures with good adherence to the substrate. A specific capacitance of 108 F/g was achieved for the electrodes in 1 M H2SO4. In addition, the CNT film electrode showed good high rate capability.
