The electrochemical performance of melamine-based covalent organic frameworks (COF) was reported. COF was also used as a sacrificial template for the synthesis of porous carbon. Both materials exhibit high electrochemical performance. We used them as electrodes for supercapacitor applications. Carbon-based materials exhibit high gravimetric capacitance compared to pristine materials.
