Abstract

Regarding todays environmental challenges carbon may be the key elemental component, usually blended into notations such as "carbon cycle" or "carbon footprint". Interestingly, not being used as "fossil fuel", carbon materials also considerably contribute to the field of sustainable energy. They are central in most electrochemical energy-related applications, i.e. they also help to generate, store, transport, and save energy.
Nanostructured carbon is already used in fuel cells, conventional batteries and super?capacitors, but is expected to play an even much bigger role in new forthcoming energy schemes. There is a huge variety of precursors and methods to produce functional carbons with different properties. Ideally, natural biomass, created via the photosynthetic conversion of CO2 from the environment, can serve as a base feedstock for the generation of such long lasting materials, which store carbon in concert with sustainable principles such as energy and atom economy and low toxicity.
We develop new strategies to synthesize novel nanostructured and functional carbon-rich materials and derivatives thereof. Our first aim is to generate materials leading to improved performances in electrochemical applications. The second aim is to do that sustainably.
