Abstract Here we report the first membrane-free biofuel cell obtained using three-dimensional carbonaceous foam electrodes. We first developed a new synthetic pathway to produce a new carbonaceous foam electrode material bearing porosity both on the meso and macroporous scales. We proved that by increasing the porosity of our three-dimensional foams we could increase the current density of our modified electrodes. Then, by choosing the right combination of enzyme and mediator, and the right loading of active components, we achieved high current densities for an anodic system. Finally, we combined the improved cathode and anode to build a new membrane-free hybrid enzymatic biofuel cell consisting of a mediated anode and a mediator-free cathode.
