Gram-scale production of nitrogen doped graphene using a 1,3-dipolar organic precursor and their utilisation as stable, metal free oxygen evolution reaction catalysts

Abstract

For the first time, a one-step scalable synthesis of a few-layer ~10% nitrogen doped (N-doped) graphene nanosheets (GNSs) from a stable but highly reactive 1,3-dipolar organic precursor is reported. The utilization of these N-doped GNSs as metal-free electrocatalysts for the oxygen evolution reaction (OER) is also demonstrated. This process may open the path for scalable production of other heteroatom doped GNSs by using the broad library of well-known, stable 1,3-dipolar organic compounds.
