Abstract

An activated carbon (AC) was synthesized via pyrolysis of waste green tea bag powder at 600 °C and subsequent activation of the carbonized powder by KOH at 800 °C. The AC powder exhibited an irregular particle size but a large specific surface area and pore volume of 2015 m2 g−1 and 0.727 cm3 g−1, respectively, which were significantly enhanced values compared with those of the original waste green tea bag powder. Furthermore, we tested the AC for use as a sulfur host for a lithium–sulfur battery cathode using cyclic voltammetry and galvanostatic charge/discharge cycling.
