This work reports for the preparation of ruthenium oxide (RuO2) nanoparticles directly on flexible substrate coated with gold thin layer. The nano structured electrodes RuO2 nanoparticles were prepared in a solution at low temperature of 40°C. The optimized nanostructured RuO2 on Au coated polyethylene naphthalate (PEN) is prepared using pulse current electrodeposition technique at 10% duty cycle, 100 Hz frequency and peak current of 2A/dm2 with deposition time of 15 min. The scanning electron microscopy analysis and characterization of the prepared electrodes shows well crystalline structure with homogeneous particles with average of 500 nm arranged in an ordered. The fabricated nanoparticles could be used in the application of energy storage as well as gas detection.
