Abstract

Vanadium oxides were electrodeposited on fluorine doped tin dioxide glass substrates using an aqueous solution of ammonium metavanadate at room temperature for various growth periods keeping the current density constant. The deposition period was found to affect the structure and the morphology of the oxides indicating low crystalline quality and smooth surfaces respectively for periods < 2000 s. It has been found that crystalline vanadium pentoxide grown for 2000 s presented the highest amount of charge, being 0.43 0C interchanged between the oxide and the electrolyte with a respective specific capacitance of 286 F g-1 having a satisfactory stability after 500 continuous scans. The significance of achieving crystalline low-cost vanadium pentoxide at room temperature with enhanced electrochemical properties for applications as electroactive material is highlighted.
