    Studying Supercapacitive Performance of Cobalt-based Hierarchical Nanostructures

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Afsahi, Nikan (Author) ; Naseri, Naimeh (Supervisor)
    One of the pillars of reaching a steady development is to utilize sustainable energies. In order to make use of these modern means of energy, appropriate energy storage devices are inevitable. One of the families of these devices is the supercapacitors. Moving toward the 4th industrial revolution, we are encountering modern technologies such as internet of things and wearable electronics. Therefore, designing and fabricating microsupercapacitors is of paramount importance in order to reduce the weight and size of these devices. Cobalt and nickel are considered as two important elements to be used in synthesizing supercapacitive materials and composites, because of their good electrochemical...

    In this study, for the first time, we reported a fast and facile three-step in situ strategy for direct controllable growth of the Co3(BTC)2 MOFs thin films on the GCE, through the rapid conversion of the electrodeposited Co(OH)2 nano-flakes on rGO/GCE, to crystalline rectangular bar-shape structures of MOFs. X-ray diffraction spectroscopy, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, field emission scanning electron microscopy, energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy and elemental mapping analysis used to the structural and morphological characterization of the well-synthesized MOFs. The as-prepared Co3(BTC)2 MOFs were used to construct a non-enzymatic sensing platform for determining the glucose... 

    Mesoporous nanostructures of NiCo-LDH/ZnCo2O4 as an efficient electrocatalyst for oxygen evolution reaction

    Increasing energy demands for pollution-free and renewable energy technologies have stimulated intense research on the development of inexpensive, highly efficient, and stable non-noble metal electrocatalysts for oxygen evolution reaction (OER). In this study, a superior OER performance was achieved using a tri-metallic (Zn, Co, Ni) high-performance electrocatalyst. We successfully fabricated a peony-flower-like hierarchical ZnCo2O4 through an additive-free hydrothermal reaction followed by heat treatment. Then NiCo-LDH (layered double hydroxides) nano-flakes was electrodeposited on the ZnCo2O4/GCE surface to prepare NiCo-LDH/ZnCo2O4/GCE which was used as electrode for OER. The structure and...
