    Recent developments in asymmetric supercapacitor (ASC) electrode materials (anode and cathode) including carbonaceous materials, metal oxides/nitrides, conductive polymers, and 2D materials are highlighted. A rational electrode material design with tailored nanostructures endows significant improvement in the specific capacitance and energy density of ASCs. The resulting ASCs have the potential to function as a fast charging energy source for next-generation flexible electronics, e-textiles, and transportation applications.

    A general method is developed to synthesize highly complex multishelled mixed metal-oxide particles with tunable size and composition from the pyrolysis of a novel class of amorphous coordination polymers. With the structural and compositional advantages, the unique seven-shelled NiCo2O4 particles exhibit remarkable electrochemical performance as an electrode material for hybrid supercapacitors.
