Abstract

Hierarchical 1D carbon structures are attractive due to their mechanical, chemical andelectrochemical properties however the synthesis of these materials can be costly andcomplicated. Here, through the combination of inexpensive acetylacetonate salts of Ni,Co and Fe with a solution of polyacrylonitr...
