Synthesis of nanoporous graphenes via decarboxylation reaction

Chem Commun (Camb). 2020 Jun 14;56(47):6336-6339. doi: 10.1039/d0cc01913e. Epub 2020 May 14.


Two kinds of C-C bonded crystalline nanoporous graphenes (NPGs) have been synthesized by using a newly developed decarboxylation reaction. Both NPGs show good electrocatalytic oxygen evolution reaction (OER) activities. The clear pore-edge structures of the synthesized NPGs provide an ideal platform for further OER investigations.
