Carbon materials has stood out over the years as one of the most versatile materials due to their earth abundance, cost-effectiveness, easy functionalization capabilities and a range of applications. At the nanoscale, they have attracted quite a lot of attention due to their encapsulation ability, controlled permeability, surface functionality, excellent chemical and thermal stability. The application and utility of nano-carbon increases with higher surface area and better graphitization thereby increasing the electrical conductivity. In this work, we have explored the versatility of the hollow carbon nanospheres which were synthesized by a template-based method by incorporating different modes of applications namely, encapsulation ability and catalytic properties. We explored the possibility of encapsulating dye inside the same and studied optical properties and also explored electrocatalysis by incorporating Ni nanoparticles into the carbon sphere.
