A nitrogen-doped graphene/carbon nanotube nanocomposite with synergistically enhanced electrochemical activity

Adv Mater. 2013 Jun 18;25(23):3192-6. doi: 10.1002/adma.201300515. Epub 2013 May 8.


A new kind of nitrogen-doped graphene/carbon nanotube nanocomposite can be synthesized by a facile hydrothermal process under mild conditions, which exhibits synergistically enhanced electrochemical activity for the oxygen reduction reaction. This research provides a new route to access a metal-free electrocatalyst with high activity under mild conditions.
