The asymmetric supercapacitor with negative electrode by graphene foam loaded Polypyrrole nanowires (PPy NWs/rGOF) and positive electrode by [email protected]2 core–shell nanowires on graphene foam ([email protected]2 NWs/rGOF) was developed. The negative electrode was further converted into the positive electrode by one-step redox reaction at room temperature. Graphene foam (rGOF) with unique flexibility, large surface area and high electric conductivity can favor in situ growth of polypyrrole nanowires (PPy NWs) as well as improve cycling stability of the resultant negative electrode. PPy NWs served as the ideal template for the formation of MnO2 shell gives rise to the as-prepared positive electrode with fast electron transport and enhanced active material utilization. Owing to the rational design, the assembled asymmetric supercapacitor was able to be repeatedly discharged/charged at 1.6 V, displaying high energy density of 1.04 mWh cm–3 with improved cycling stability.
