Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are crystalline porous materials (like porous sponges) that have a large specific surface area of ​​over 7,000 square meters per gram and are expected to be extremely promising electrode materials for electrochemical energy storage. At present, more than 20,000 types of MOF materials have been synthesized. However, the low conductivity has severely limited its application in the field of energy storage. The use of pure MOF materials directly as electrodes for energy storage is rarely reported.

Recently, the Xu Gang Group of the State Key Laboratory of Structural Chemistry of the Institute of Structure Research of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the Wang Yaobing Research Group of the Key Laboratory of Functional Nanostructure Design and Assembly of the Chinese Academy of Sciences cooperated with the use of conductive MOFs nano-array as the sole electrode material to construct a high Area capacitance symmetric solid super capacitor. Solid supercapacitors based on conductive MOFs nanoarrays exhibit an area capacitance of ~22μFcm−2, which is higher than most carbon materials (less than 10μFcm−2) and even comparable to graphene-based symmetric solid supercapacitors (18.9–25μFcm−2) . Compared with powder materials, these nanostructured electrodes can significantly reduce the resistance of the system and the charge transfer resistance between the interfaces, effectively increasing the charge transfer rate between the nano-array and the electrolyte. The above structural advantages can greatly improve the overall performance of the device, in particular, can obtain a high rate of capacitance. It is noteworthy that, in terms of synthesis, graphene is usually harsh (strong acids, strong oxidants, and time-consuming) compared to conductive MOF materials that are synthesized at temperatures slightly above room temperature in a matter of hours. Efficient.
