Electrochemical measurements demonstrate the improved ionic conductivity of an electrode and enhanced supercapacitive behavior, as compared to a mesoporous cobalt hydroxide film on a titanium current collector without indium tin oxide (ITO) NWs as “electron highways”. Galvanostatic charge–discharge measurements in 1 M KOH solution prove that the electrode of the as-prepared heterostructure possesses excellent electrochemical capacitance, in the potential range from −0.1 V to 0.5 V with a maximum specific capacitance of 1128 F g−1 at a discharge current density of 1 A g−1. The unique mesoporous α-Co(OH)2/ITO NWs heterostructure provides a high capacitance retention ratio at high discharge current densities and long-term electrochemical stability in an alkaline solution.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/10356/99842
