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

Zheng, Yao and Jiao, Yan and Ge, Lei ORCID: 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.
