Two graphene-like carbide derived carbons (CDC-Gs) were produced by chlorination of SiC nanosheets obtained by magnesio-thermal reduction at moderate temperature of silica/graphene oxide nanocomposites. These CDC-Gs were evaluated as supercapacitor electrode materials in an organic electrolyte. Starting from a low SiO2/GO ratio in the precursor, the resulting CDC-G nanosheets are composed of a few layers of graphite, partially coated with microporous CDC. In contrast, a high SiO2/GO ratio leads to micropores generated on the basal plane of individual carbon nanosheets. The latter CDC-G shows a remarkable high power capability with 76 % of retention of the initial capacity at scan rates up to 3 V s-1. Notably, the equivalent series resistance (ESR) and time constant of the cell were found to be extremely low at 0.45 Ω cm2 and 0.4 s, respectively, thanks to the unique 2D open surface and enhanced access to micropores. These features were attributed to the unique nanostructure of the microporous graphene.
