Nitrogen doped carbon nanocapsules (NCNCs) were synthesized as a non-noble electrocatalyst for the ORR using a simple and efficient route. The NCNCs exhibited higher activity than the commercial Pt/C catalyst, excellent stability, and resistance to methanol oxidation in the oxygen reduction reaction.
