Abstract: Nickel oxide/hydroxide represents a very important family of pseudo-capacitor electrode material as well as a promising candidate for electrochemical energy storage. However, the capacitance, the rate capability as well as the energy density need improving. In this thesis work, a novel ternary metal oxide/hydroxide, i.e. nickel copper oxide/hydroxide, as supercapacitor electrode material has been initiated and studied systematically. The main objective to boost the supercapacitor performance of pristine nickel oxide/hydroxide has been achieved. This work fills some gaps, in both experimental data, knowledge and its application, among the reported nickel based ternary oxides for supercapacitors. The improvement originates from the synergistic effect. An effective and simple approach (copper incorporation) is proved effective to modify and elevate the overall supercapacitor performance of nickel oxide/hydroxide binary system. It also consolidates the concept of copper incorporation and represents an imperative step towards the development of superior supercapacitor electrode materials.
