The rational design and fabrication of more multi-component (material-combination) 3D hierarchical heterostructures for high-performance pseudocapacitor applications still remains a challenge. Herein, we have designed and synthesized a 3D hierarchical heterostructure of MnO2 nanosheets or nanorods grown on an Au-coated Co3O4 porous nanowall array, resembling a sandwich configuration of Co3O4@Au@MnO2, by a facial and controllable electrochemical deposition process. Due to their unique self-assembling architecture and characteristics including porous Co3O4 nanowalls, ultrathin MnO2 nanosheets, and a high conductivity Au layer sandwiched between them, each component provides a much-needed critical function for the efficient use of metal oxides for energy storage. The synthesized 3D hierarchical heterostructures exhibited favorable electrochemical performances, such as a high specific capacitances of 851.4 F g-1 at 10 mV s-1 and 1532.4 F g-1 at 1 A g-1, good rate performance and an excellent long-term cycling stability (almost no degradation after 5000 cycles), which are better than those of the reported Co3O4 or MnO2 based electrode materials, and thus could be considered as perspective materials for high-performance electrochemical capacitors.
