Organized chaos: A highly disordered carbon composite is synthesized through self-assembly and subsequent pyrolysis. When evaluated as an anode material for room-temperature sodium-ion batteries, the as-obtained carbon delivers superior electrochemical characteristics in terms of reversible capacity, cycling performance, and rate capability.
