The fabrication of polymeric materials-based nanosupercapacitors with unique properties such as an ultra-fast charge–discharge rate and high specific capacitance for high-performance energy sources has advanced rapidly in recent years. Experiments on the performance, charge storage mechanisms, and capacitance of polymeric nanostructure-based supercapacitors, in particular, are gaining traction in electrochemical energy storage nanotechnologies. This chapter gives points to all aspects of synthesis methods, surface characterizations, performances, and energy storage mechanisms of polymeric materials-based supercapacitors. Furthermore, there has been great attention to the preparation and performance of resins, biopolymers, carbon nanofiber networks, nano-hybrid materials, nanocellulose-based materials, polymer/metal oxide nanocomposites, and conductive polymer/graphene/metal nanoparticles for supercapacitor applications. Finally, some new strategies for nanoplatforms, as well as a comprehensive understanding of the unique properties, current limitations, and future outlook of advanced nanostructure-based supercapacitors, were highlighted.
