Nanocomposites composed of zeolitic imidazole framework (ZIF) and carbon nanotube (CNT) and graphene oxide (GO) have been synthesized by a simple ultrasonic method in atmospheric condition. Electrochemical techniques like cyclic voltammetry, galvanostatic charge/discharge and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy have been used for measuring electrochemical properties of samples using 6 M NaOH as electrolyte. Nanocomposite samples of ZIF-67 with CNT and GO showed high specific capacity of 248 F/g and 230 F/g, respectively. These values are much higher than that of absolute ZIF67 sample. In addition to pseudocapacitance behavior, the internal resistances of nanocomposite samples are less than ZIF-67 sample that shows the beneficial effect of added carbon materials.Keywords: Pseudocapacitance, Zeolitic Imidazole Framework, Carbon Nanotube, Graphene Oxide, Metal-Organic Framework.
