Structure and electrochemical properties of carbon nanostructures derived from nickel(II) and iron(II) phthalocyanines

Abstract : Mesoporous carbons containing up to 3.6 at.% N and 4.4 at.% O and exhibiting graphitic character have been prepared from Ni(II) and Fe(II) phthalocyanines by direct pyrolysis or by HTC + pyrolysis, and subsequently applied as supercapacitor materials. No mesoporous templates or doping post-treatments were used, and the catalytic effect of Ni(II) and Fe(II), naturally present in the precursor molecules, allowed obtaining graphitic carbons at temperatures £ 900°C. Metals were encapsulated in the core of onion-like structures with no contact with the electrolyte, so that electrodes were prevented from degradation during device operation. The materials exhibited high rate capabilities up to 1 V s-1 , higher interfacial capacitances than a wide variety of materials possessing higher surface areas, and high capacitance retentions up to 99% at 5 A g-1 current density throughout 10 000 *Main documents (including title page, MS text, references,Tables and Figures) Click here to view linked References 2 charge-discharge cycles. The electrochemical performances of the phthalocyanine-derived carbons are due to their graphitic character and to the pseudocapacitance contribution of the surface groups through Faradaic reactions. This work opens a new way to obtain carbon materials from a great family of metal phthalocyanines, since the central metal and the radicals of the latter can be varied to tune the carbon properties for specific applications.
