Mesoporous ZnCo2O4 nanoflakes with bifunctional electrocatalytic activities toward efficiencies of rechargeable lithium–oxygen batteries in aprotic media

Abstract

This study reports the successful synthesis of ternary spinel-based ZnCo2O4 nanoflakes (NFs) with mesoporous architectures via the combination of a urea-assisted hydrothermal reaction with calcination in an air atmosphere. Owing to their favorable mesostructures and desirable bifunctional oxygen reduction and evolution activities, the resulting mesoporous ZnCo2O4 NFs yielded stable cyclability at a cut-off capacity of 500 mA h gcarbon−1 in the case of aprotic Li–O2 batteries.
