Summary of "Hydrothermal synthesis of VS/CNTs composite with petal-shape structures performing a high specific capacity in a large potential range for high-performance symmetric supercapacitors."

Vanadium sulfide (VS) is recognized as a good anode material for energy storage devices because of its chain-like structure and high content of sulfur. Herein, the patronite VS anchored on carbon nanocubes (denoted as VS/CNTs) with a petal-shape structure consisting of nanolayers is successfully prepared through a one-step hydrothermal reaction. The influence of the optimal ratio of VS and CNTs on the electrochemical properties of VS/CNTs composite is studied by cyclic voltammetry (CV), galvanostatic charge-discharge (GCD) and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS). The addition of CNTs increases the conductivity and relieves the volume expansion/contraction, resulting excellent electrochemical properties of VS/CNTs. In the potential window of -1.4 V to 1.4 V, the VS/CNTs composite electrode delivers an outstanding specific capacitance of 330 F g (924 C g) at 1 A g, which is much higher than that of VS with 105 F g (294 C g). The VS/CNTs symmetric supercapacitor (SSC) device exhibits the areal capacitance as high as 676 mF cm (1488 mC cm) at 0.5 mA cm, and the energy density of 4.55 W h m (51.2 W h kg) at the power density of 2.75 W m (30.95 W kg) within a large voltage up to 2.2 V. All the results confirm that VS/CNTs composite with petal-shape structures is a promising material for high-performance energy storage devices.

Large cytoplasmic ribonucleoprotein particles that have an eight-fold symmetry with a central pore and petal-like structure giving the appearance of an octagonal dome. (The Dictionary of Cell Biology, Lackie and Dow, 2nd ed.)

Nucleic acid structures found on the 5' end of eukaryotic cellular and viral messenger RNA and some heterogeneous nuclear RNAs. These structures, which are positively charged, protect the above specified RNAs at their termini against attack by phosphatases and other nucleases and promote mRNA function at the level of initiation of translation. Analogs of the RNA caps (RNA CAP ANALOGS), which lack the positive charge, inhibit the initiation of protein synthesis.
