Energy storage applications of biomass-derived carbon materials: batteries and supercapacitors

Abstract

As the rapid development of energy storage technologies, especially for the practical application, it is of paramount importance to consider the cost, environmental friendliness and sustainability of the devices. Recently, biomass-derived carbon materials (BDCMs), due to their superior properties, such as renewability, earth-abundancy, low-cost, good electrical conductivity and stability, have been researched diffusely for energy storage. This article, we mainly review recent researches of BDCMs applications, especially for batteries and supercapacitors. Fundamentals and advantages/disadvantages of typical BDCMs for energy storage are discussed. Some possible future research directions are also provided in the end.
