Hollow carbon nanospheres using an asymmetric triblock copolymer structure directing agent

Journal Article


Abstract


  • We introduce a simple method to prepare hollow carbon nanospheres

    (HCNs) by using triblock copolymer poly(styrene-b-2-vinylpyridine-bethylene

    oxide) (PS-b-P2VP-b-PEO) micelles as a new class of softtemplates.

    Simply by changing the solvent we can prepare ultra-small

    sized micelles of the triblock copolymer PS-b-P2VP-b-PEO soft

    template to obtain HCNs with ultra-small diameters (43 nm) and hollow

    cores (19 nm). Furthermore, we use these HCNs to make electric

    double-layer capacitors (EDLCs) that exhibit superior performance.
