The biomass-derived mesoporous core-shell Fe3C@graphene oxide nanospheres (mFe3C@GO NSs) was synthesized with high-quality lignins and applied for electrochemical energy storage. The synthesis conditions of mFe3C@GO NSs are optimized and its formation mechanism is proposed. The mFe3C@GO NSs homogeneously dispersed in GO conductive network and maintained the structural integrity of the electrode during the electrochemical process. Benefiting from the advantages of the core-shell construction and graphene oxide network, the mFe3C@GO NSs exhibits extensible exploration in electrochemical energy storage (EES).
