In this paper, a hydrothermal synthesis method was applied to load Ni-Co Layered Double Hydroxide (LDH) directly on the Nickel foam (NF) as precursor, and by using an electrodeposition method to gain the Co(OH)2/Ni-Co LDH composite. The structure and morphology of as-obtained composite was characterized by X-ray diffractometer (XRD) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Electrochemical performances of the as-obtained composite were tested by cyclic voltammetry and galvanostatic
