Metal–organic framework (MOF)-derived nanoporous carbon materials have attracted significant interest due to their advantages of controllable porosity, good thermal/chemical stability, high electrical conductivity, catalytic activity, easy modification with other elements and materials, etc. Thus, MOF-derived carbons have been used in numerous applications, such as environmental remediations, energy storage systems (i.e. batteries, supercapacitors), and catalysts. To date, many strategies have been developed to enhance the properties and performance of MOF-derived carbons. Herein, we introduce and summarize recent important approaches for advanced MOF-derived carbon structures with a focus on precursor control, heteroatom doping, shape/orientation control, and hybridization with other functional materials.

Dr. Md. Shahriar A. Hossain received his Ph.D. degree from the University of Wollongong. After that, he was employed as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the University of Geneva (Switzerland) for two years and eight months. He returned to the University of Wollongong in 2011 and was employed as a Research Fellow until 2012. After just a year, he was awarded the highly prestigious ARC DECRA (Discovery Early Career Research Award) grant and completed the project successfully in 2016. In 2018, he moved to the School of Mechanical and Mining Engineering, Universi- ty of Queensland, as a Senior Lecturer. He is also affiliated with the Australian Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology (AIBN).
