Abstract: Today, we stand at the edge of exploring carbon nanotube (CNT) and graphene based polymer composites and supercapacitors as next generation multifunctional materials. Supercapacitor materials have been alternative energy source in modern electronics era. Due to their excellent electrical, mechanical and thermal properties, CNTs, graphene and their derivatives have been most promising nanofillers in different fields of applications. In this review, we have focused electrical conductivity of the polymer composites as well as supercapacitor behavior of composites based on CNTs, graphene and their derivatives. To enhance the electrical and supercapacitor properties of the composites, nanofillers are functionalized or chemically modified through different techniques. Here, we have discussed the structure, preparation, electrical and supercapacitor properties of different composites based on CNTs, graphene and their derivatives along with detailed reported scientific literature.
