Metal-organic framework-derived one-dimensional porous or hollow carbon-based nanofibers for energy storage and conversion

Journal Article


Abstract


  • Metal organic framework (MOF)-derived nanoporous carbons (NPCs) have been proposed as promising

    electrode materials for energy storage and conversion devices. However, MOF-derived NPCs typically

    suffer from poor electrical conductivity due to the lack of connectivity between these particles and

    a micropore-dominated storage mechanism, which hinder mass and electron transfer, thereby leading

    to poor electrochemical performance. In recent years, one-dimensional (1D) MOF-derived carbon

    nanostructures obtained using an electrospinning method have emerged as promising materials for both

    electrochemical energy storage (EES) and energy conversion applications. In this mini review, the recent

    progress in the development of MOF-derived 1D porous or hollow carbon nanofibers using the

    electrospinning method and their application in energy storage (e.g., supercapacitors and rechargeable

    batteries) and conversion devices (e.g., fuel cells) is presented. The synthetic method, formation

    mechanism and the structure–activity relationship of such porous or hollow carbon nanofibers are

    also discussed in detail. Finally, future perspectives on the development of electrospun MOF-derived

    carbon nanomaterials for energy storage and conversion applications are provided. This review will

    provide some guidance for future derivations of 1D hollow carbon nanomaterials from MOFs using

    electrospinning technology.
