Carbon in charge: A straightforward method is presented for the synthesis of carbon nanotube (CNT)/porous carbon composite electrodes with uniform distribution of the CNTs and high surface area of the carbon material. The crystallinity of the CNTs is not affected by the high-temperature activation process. Monolithic CNT/activated carbon composite electrodes that do not need binder or current collector were also developed.
