Carbon-based catalysts are widely regarded as one of the most promising materials for energy storage and conversion technologies due to their high electrical conductivity as well as tunable micro- and nanostructures. Developing efficient, low-cost, and durable bifunctional carbon-based electrocatalysts remains challenging. In this review, the recent advances in the field of carbon-based oxygen reduction reaction/oxygen evolution reaction electrocatalysts for Zn-air batteries are briefly reviewed, focusing on the fabrication strategies of carbon-based electrocatalysts. Finally, the present challenges and perspectives in developing advanced bifunctional carbon-based electrocatalysts are outlined. This journal is
