Herein, triangular prism shaped Co3O4 material was constructed by a facile route and used as a supercapacitor electrode. The Co3O4 material was fully characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), scanning electron microscope (SEM) and transmission electron microscope (TEM). Electrochemical characterization revealed that the Co3O4 material showed a high specific capacitance of 907.1 F g -1 at a current density of
