Transition metal oxide/carbon nanocomposites are used as electrode materials 🔋 because they can offer a combination of high redox activity and electrical conductivity ⚡. They are often synthesized via pyrolysis 🔥 of a carbon-containing (organic) species confined within the oxide structure. But what happens during pyrolysis? The carbon formation process largely remained a “black box”.

Our latest work gives detailed insights into the physicochemical processes occurring during pyrolysis, thereby establishing a clear link between synthesis and resulting nanocomposite microstructure. This can help researchers to more accurately tailor their choice of materials and synthesis conditions to obtain TMO/C nanocomposite materials.

Congrats to first-author Mennatalla Elmanzalawy and a big thank you to all collaborators!
