Choosing “green” and economically viable precursor and synthesis process for the production of carbon nanofibers would make them a sustainable alternative for energy storage applications. Nature provides a wide variety of renewable raw materials with diverse properties and chemical compositions. The potential of biomass-derived carbons for energy storage is being well recognized nowadays. In this project, biomass-derived carbon precursors will be investigated for the production of electrospun carbon nanofibers. Then, the developed carbon nanofibers will be tested as potential anode material in lithium-ion batteries.
