Formation of N-Doped Carbon Nanomaterials for ORR Catalysis and Li Storage

Part of the Springer Theses book series (Springer Theses)


Caron materials have been widely used as sorption, electrode, and catalyst support materials due to the low density, high surface area, high stability and excellent conductivity. Nitrogen can be doped in carbon materials to modify the electron structure of carbon atoms to boost their electrochemical performances (e.g. ORR catalysis).
