Electrodes made of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) chemically modified by a series of anthraquinone derivatives (AQ) have been prepared and characterized by cyclic voltammetry in 0.1M H2SO4, using the standard 3 electrode set-up and by Raman spectroscopy. It has been demonstrated that a AQ modified SWCNT electrode provided between 114 to 220% higher specific capacitance, compared to pristine SWCNT electrode, depending on the length of the spacer between SWCNT and AQ.
