Mesoporous nickel oxide nanowires were synthesized by a hydrothermal reaction and subsequent annealing at 400?degrees C. The porous one-dimensional nanostructures were analysed by field-emission SEM, high-resolution TEM and N2 adsorption/desorption isotherm measurements. When applied as the anode material in lithium-ion batteries, the as-prepared mesoporous nickel oxide nanowires demonstrated outstanding electrochemical performance with high lithium storage capacity, satisfactory cyclability and an excellent rate capacity. They also exhibited a high specific capacitance of 348 F?g-1 as electrodes in supercapacitors.
