Nitrogen-doped carbon materials are promising oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) electrocatalysts owing to high performance and stability. Herein, a three-dimensional porous bio-MOF-1, Zn(Ad)(Bpdc)O·2MeNH (Ad = adeninate; Bpdc = biphenyldicarboxylate), was used as precursor to fabricate N-doped porous carbon materials (NPC-1000-ts, where 1000 stands for the carbonization temperature and t represents the carbonization time, t = 2, 3 and 4 h) by simple carbonization under Ar atmosphere. The porous carbon materials had different contents of graphitic N and graphitization degrees of carbon. Read More
