Designing and fabricating high-performance microwave absorption materials with efficient electromagnetic absorption and corrosion resistance becomes a serious and urgent concern. Herein, novel corrosion-resistant graphene-based carbon-coated iron (Fe@C) magnetic composite foam is fabricated via self-assembly of iron phthalocyanine/Fe3O4 (FePc hybrid) on the graphene skeletons under solvothermal conditions and then annealing at high temperature. As a result, the rational construction of a hierarchical impedance gradient between graphene skeletons and Fe@C particles can facilitate the optimization in impedance matching and attenuation characteristic of the foam, realizing the efficient dissipation for incident electromagnetic waves. Additionally, the performance of electromagnetic absorption can be controllably regulated by optimizing annealing temperature and/or time. More importantly, the formation of a carbon-coated iron structure substantially improves the corrosion resistance of magnetic particles, endowing the composite foam with excellent stability and durability in microwave absorption performance.
