The recent progress of nitrogen-doped carbon nanomaterials for electrochemical batteries

Abstract

Carbon nanomaterials have been widely explored as electrode materials for the fabrication of electrochemical batteries. Nitrogen doping represents a general and effective method in further improving the physical and chemical properties of carbon nanomaterials to enhance the energy storage capabilities of the resulting batteries. In this review article, the recent advance in the synthesis and property of nitrogen-doped carbon nanomaterials including carbon nanotube, graphene, porous carbon, and carbon nanofibers is first highlighted. The use of nitrogen-doped carbon nanomaterials in various electrochemical batteries such as lithium-ion batteries, lithium-sulfur batteries, metal-air (oxygen) batteries and sodium-ion batteries has been then discussed with a focus on their electrochemical properties. The remaining challenge and the possible direction of nitrogen-doped carbon nanomaterials for electrochemical batteries are finally described to provide some useful clues for the future development of this promising field.
