Abstract

CaCO3-templating is a strategy for synthesizing porous carbon (PC) materials that has been widely used for decades. In this work, a modified template-removal process, soaking the pyrolysis product by hydrochloric acid solution, was proposed to optimize the graphitization degree, morphology, specific...
