The rapid development of capacitive materials can be attributed to the introduction of novel approaches to the design and production of energy storage materials. In this context, multiple grapheme-based spinal metal oxide nanoparticles display a significant capacitive potential. In addition, graphene nanocomposites that contain electron-donating inclusions boost the electronic importance of the chemicals that are supported. By utilizing the co-precipitation method, copper chromite nanoparticles implanted on graphene oxide (CuCr2O4/GO) were manufactured to produce a material that is capable of serving as an efficient energy storage medium. The production of CuCr2O4 was accomplished via the use of a basic sol-gel method, whereas the production of GO was accomplished through the use of a modified version of Hummer's strategy. For this purpose of determining the X-ray diffraction analysis was performed, and energy-dispersive spectroscopy and electrochemical analysis were utilized to determine chemical weight composition. The nano-composite, in its as-made state, is suitable for touch-sensitive energy storage, as evidenced by the fact that the highest capacitance of 370.5 Fg1 that could be measured matched to an aqueous electrolyte of 0.1 M H2SO4; this finding supports the hypothesis that the nano-composite was designed specifically for this purpose. As a result, the CuCr2O4/GO material, in the form in which it has been developed, has the potential to be an effective capacitive material for applications involving energy storage.
