Well dispersed MnO2 micro-flowers were grown directly on carbon nanofibers via a simple hydrothermal technique without any template. Structure and morphology were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD) and field-emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM) equipped with rapid EDX (energy dispersive analysis of X-ray). The appealed characterization techniques specified that the obtained material is carbon nanofibers decorated by MnO2 micro-flowers. Super capacitive performance of the MnO2 micro-flowers decorated CNFs as active electrode material was evaluated by cyclic voltammetry (CV) in alkaline medium and yield a reasonable specific capacitance of 120 Fg 1 at 5 mV s 1. As a catalyst for hydrazine oxidation, the MnO2 micro-flowers decorated CNFs showed high current density. The impressive bi-functional electrochemical activity of MnO2 micro-flowers decorated CNFs is mainly attributed to its unique architectural structure.
