Sulfur/ hierarchical pores carbon composites for the Li-S battery
What is it about?
In this work, unique carbon materials with various hierarchical pores were synthesized from zinc containing metal-organic frameworks (MOFs). This presents a novel method and rationale for utilizing carbonized MOFs for sulfur loading to fabricate cathode structures for lithium-sulfur batteries. High temperature pyrolysis of MOFs is shown to produce carbon with tunable hierarchical porous morphology. Starting with different MOFs, it is possible to produce variations in the pore volume, surface are
