Abstract

Metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) are important in the field of inorganic–organic hybrid crystals. MOFs, in particular, have attracted increasing attention in recent years due to their excellent properties such as large specific surface area, good electrical conductivity, tunable porosity, controllable scale, and excellent thermal/chemical properties. Recent studies have shown that carbon materials derived from MOF precursors have the properties of MOFs, including their specific surface area and porous structure, while still allowing in-situ doping of heteroatoms such as N, S, P, and B. MOF precursor, the composition and shape of the resulting carbon particles can be easily tuned. These remarkable properties demonstrate the great potential of MOF-derived carbons as high-performance electronic materials used in energy storage and conversion. This review is designed to provide an overview of recent advances in MOF-derived carbon materials for energy storage applications. At first the composition, structure, and synthesis of MOF-derived carbon materials have been discussed. Later, their applications and potential in various energy storage areas, including lithium/sodium-ion rechargeable batteries, supercapacitors etc. have been examined. Finally, insights and visions into the future of MOF-derived carbon materials have been discussed.
