Two‐step boron and nitrogen doping in graphene for enhanced synergistic catalysis

Zheng, Yao and Jiao, Yan and Ge, Lei and Jaroniec, Mietek and Qiao, Shi Zhang (2013) Two‐step boron and nitrogen doping in graphene for enhanced synergistic catalysis. Angewandte Chemie International Edition, 52 (11). pp. 3110-3116. ISSN 1433-7851


Don't be a dope: be a double dope! Graphene was doped with both boron and nitrogen at well-defined doping sites to induce a synergistic effect that boosts its catalytic activity for oxygen reduction (see structure). The excellent catalytic performance of the new metal-free catalyst is comparable to that of commercial Pt/C.
