Energy is an extremely vital need in our daily life. The fact that energy is so important makes energy storage
technologies indispensable. Fuel cells, batteries, and supercapacitors stand out as energy storage systems.
Supercapasitors have attracted great interest due to their excellent fast charge/discharge ability and long
cycle life among energy storage technologies. Graphitic carbon nitride (g-C3N4) has drawn attention as a 2D
nitrogen-containing carbon material with incredible electronic properties. Among metal oxides, MnO2 and
Co3O4 have been extensively studied due to their good electrochemical properties. Herein, we wanted to
take advantage of this excellent combination. MnO2/g-C3N4/Co3O4 nanocomposite has been successfully
fabricated through a facile hydrothermal method. The coupling of metal oxides and the nitrogen-containing
carbon material (g-C3N4) demonstrated great electrochemical performance as a supercapacitor electrode.
MnO2/g-C3N4/ Co3O4 nanocomposite electrode demonstrated high specific capacitance of 299 F/g at a
current density of 0.5 A/g, excellent cycling stability, and over %89 capacitance retention after 10000 cycles.
This study showed the advantages of the MnO2/g-C3N4/Co3O4 nanocomposite for improved supercapacitor
