AbstractThe development and utilization of biomass resources could contribute to new materials for long-term sustainable energy storage and environmental applications, reduce environmental impacts, and meet the urgent need for green and sustainable development strategies. Herein, a bimetallic metal-phenolic network (MPN) was applied to incorporate different metallic element species into cattle skin and fabricate collagen-fiber-derived complex oxide nanofibers using natural polyphenols (Myrica tannins). Direct thermal transition of these biomass-MPN composites generates hierarchically porous nanofibers possessing micro- and mesoporous architectures along with a well-preserved macroscopic structure. The pore system and complex oxide composition provide excellent photocatalytic performance. This low-cost, simple, and readily scalable MPN-based approach provides a straightforward route to synthesize nanostructured materials directly from biomass, which could play important roles in a wide range of potential applications.
