Energy Storage: Highly Ordered MnO2 Nanopillars for Enhanced Supercapacitor Performance (Adv. Mater. 24/2013)



A simple but highly efficient nanoarchitecturing technique, spin-on nanoprinting (SNAP), is reported by Jayan Thomas and co-workers on page 3302. It is used to print highly ordered polymer nanopillar structures without the use of sacrificial templates or any expensive equipment. Supercapacitors fabricated using this nanostructure show superior electrochemical performance, making it very attractive for the next generation energy storage systems.
