Considering the significant influence of oxygen-containing groups on the surface of carbon involved electrodes, a carbon nanotube (CNT)-based MnO2 composite catalyst was synthesized following a facile method while using polymerized ionic liquids (PIL) as sacrifice agent. Herein, the PIL (polymerized hydrophobic 1-vinyl-3-ethylimidazolium bis… CONTINUE READING
