Graphene nanoflakes functionalized with cobalt/cobalt oxides formation during cobalt organic framework carbonization

Abstract

In this contribution, we present a synthesis and carbonization mechanism of metalorganic frameworks based on the cobalt and terephthalic acid, with detailed attention to the carbonization mechanism of cobalt-based organic frameworks. The presented evolution of unique morphology of carbonized cobalt organic frameworks induced by the temperature allows to synthesize hybrid of multi layered carbon structures with metal and metal oxide nanoparticles placed between them. The formation of various phases and diameter distributions of cobalt nanoparticles, resulted in the partial degradation of carbon structure and exfoliation. Presented data describe the connection between the cobalt particles oxidation and carboreduction with the phenomenon of metal particles agglomeration. The presented study allows to select the carbonization conditions in order to obtain that desired cobalt crystalline structure on the graphene flakes from the cobalt-based MOF.
