Ultrafine amorphous BaxNi3−x(PO4)2 (0 < x < 3) nanofibers are synthesized for the first time through a facile cation exchange reaction method at room temperature. Both the phase transformation and growing process of the nanofibers are systematically investigated. A dramatic morphology transformation from Ba3(PO4)2 flakes to BaxNi3−x(PO4)2 nanofibers with the addition of Ni2+ ions is observed. The as-prepared nanofiber material shows a diameter less than 10 nanometers and length of several micrometers. The material possesses a BET surface area of 64.8 m2 g−1. When it is used as a supercapacitor electrode material, specific capacitances as high as 1058 F g−1 at 0.5 A g−1 and 713 F g−1 at 5 A g−1 are achieved, indicating the promising energy storage property of this material.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
