In the present study, the ZnO-porous carbon (ZnO-C) composites were prepared by pyrolyzing MOF-74 (Zn) precursor at different pyrolysis temperatures. The ZnO-C composites were endowed with ultrafast organic dye adsorption capability and promising supercapacitance properties due to the existence of...
