Title: Co-electrodeposition of RuO 2 –MnO 2 nanowires and the contribution of RuO 2 to the capacitance increase


Co-electrodeposition produces RuO 2–MnO 2composite nanowire electrodes with different RuO 2loading amounts. RuO 2's contribution to the composite is revealed to be conductivity rather than intrinsic capacity.
