“Carbon-based materials comprise a wide variety of materials including graphene, graphite, porous carbons, carbon nanotubes, and nanofibers, and fullerenes. They are extensively utilized as metal-free catalysts or supports in catalysis, energy (ORR, and Zn-air batteries), and sustainable chemical applications because of their fascinating chemical and physical properties.” “These properties may be boosted and tuned at […]
