Scholarcy highlights

  • These nitrogen-doped carbon materials are characterized to obtain their structural configurations in order to achieve better performance in their applications compared to
  • nitrogen-doped graphene and N-graphene quantum dots may be converted into functional materials
  • Doping of nitrogen is a promising strategy to modulate chemical, electronic, and structural functionalities of grapheneand graphene quantum dots for their outstanding properties in energy and environmental applications.This paper reviews various synthesis approaches of nitrogen-doped graphene and nitrogen-doped graphene quantum dots.;Thermal, ultrasonic, solvothermal, hydrothermal, and electron-beam methods have been applied to synthesize N-G and N-GQDs.These nitrogen-doped carbon materials are characterized to obtain their structural configurations in order to achieve better performance in their applications compared to only either graphene or graphene quantum dots.Both N-G and N-GQDs may be converted into functional materials by integrating with other compounds such as metal oxides/nitrides, polymers, and semiconductors.These functional materials demonstrate superior performance over N-G and N-GQDs materials.Examples of applications of N-G and N-GQDs include supercapacitors, batteries, sensors, fuel cells, solar cells, and photocatalyst
