An ultrahigh pyridinic N-content-doped porous carbon monolith is reported, and the content of pyridinic N reaches up to 10.1% in overall material (53.4 ± 0.9% out of 18.9 ± 0.4% N content), being higher than most of previously reported N-doping carbonaceous materials, which exhibit greatly improved electrochemical performance for potassium storage, especially in term of the high reversible capacity. Remarkably, the pyridinic N-doped porous carbon monolith (PNCM) electrode exhibits high initial charge capacity of 487 mAh g−1 at a current density of 20 mA g−1, which is one of the highest reversible capacities among all carbonaceous anodes for K-ion batteries. Moreover, the K-ion full cell is successfully assembled, demonstrating a high practical energy density of 153.5 Wh kg−1. These results make PNCM promising for practical application in energy storage devices and encourage more investigations on a similar potassium storage system. Ultrahigh pyridinic N-doped porous carbon monolith (PNCM) with 3D interconnected structure is fabricated by using melamine–formaldehyde resin as a hard template and a nitrogen source. The electrode delivers an extremely high reversible capacity of 487 mAh g−1 at 20 mA g−1. The K-ion full cell assembled with PNCM/3,4,9,10-perylene tetracarboxylicacid dianhydride demonstrates the promising potential for practical applications.
