We demonstrate that polypyrrole-derived nitrogen and oxygen co-doped mesoporous carbons can serve as efficient, metal-free electrocatalysts for hydrazine oxidation reaction, with low overpotential and high current density. The materials' structures and the nature and type of their included dopants, which can be controlled by varying the synthetic conditions, can affect the electrocatalytic properties of the materials.
