Title: High Volumetric Capacitance, Ultralong Life Supercapacitors Enabled by Waxberry-Derived Hierarchical Porous Carbon Materials

Abstract

Supercapacitors with fast charge/discharge rate and long cycling stability (>50 000 cycles) are attractive for energy storage and mobile power supply. In this paper, a facile strategy is developed to fabricate an Fe 2O 3/FeS–decorated N, S–codoped hierarchical porous carbon hybrid. Its microstructure and compositions can be readily controlled through adjusting the hydrothermal reaction between waxberry and iron sulfate. The constructed supercapacitors with the as–prepared carbon materials from this reaction are able to exhibit outstanding capacitive performance with a superfast charge/discharge rate (<1 s), ultralong cycle life (>50 000 cycles, 80 A g –1), ultrahigh volumetric capacitance (1320.4 F cm –3, 0.1 A g –1), and high energy density (100.9 W h kg –1, 221.9 W h L –1). The outstanding performance makes it one of the best biomass–derived supercapacitors. The superior capacitive behavior is likely to arise from the N and S codoping on the surface/edge/skeleton of the carbon microspheres and nanosheet composites coupled with the fast redox reaction of Fe 2O 3/FeS. Altogether, this research presents a new avenue for developing the next generation of sustainable high–performance energy storage device.
