In this paper, we report an asymmetric supercapacitor based on Ti and Cu coated vertical-aligned carbon nanotube electrodes on carbon cloth. The active material is achieved by in-situ functionalization using a high-temperature annealing process. Scanning and transmission electron microscopy and Raman spectroscopy confirm the detailed nanostructures and composition of the electrodes. The TiC@VCC and CuxS@VCC electrodes show a high specific capacity of 200.89 F g−1 and 228.37 F g−1, respectively, and good capacitive characteristics at different scan speeds. The excellent performance can be attributed to a large surface area to volume ratio and high electrical conductivity of the electrodes. Furthermore, an asymmetric supercapacitor is assembled with TiC@VCC as anode and CuxS@VCC as cathode. The full device can operate within the 0–1.4 V range, and shows a maximum energy density of 9.12 Wh kg−1 at a power density of 46.88 W kg−1. These findings suggest that the metal-based asymmetric electrodes have a great potential for supercapacitor applications.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/10356/142398||ISSN:||2296-2646||DOI:||10.3389/fchem.2019.00512||Rights:||© 2019 Sun, Wang, Wang, Xiao, Cai, Jing, Wang, Hu and Zhang.
