A hybrid nanostructure with partially reduced graphene oxide (rGO) and carbon nanofibers (CNFs) was fabricated and used as supercapacitor electrodes. A straightforward, environmentally friendly, and low cost microwave assisted ‐ reduction process was developed for the synthesis of rGO/CNF hybrid structures. The fabricated supercapacitor devices showed a specific capacitance of 95.3 F g−1 and a superior long term cycling stability. A capacitance retention of more than 97% after 11 000 galvanostatic charge discharge cycles was obtained. These and other results reported in this paper indicate that high rate, all carbon, rGO/CNF hybrid nanostructures are highly promising supercapacitor electrode materials.
