Functional Nanocomposites for Energy Storage

The increasing demands for energy have called for intense research on energy conversion from alternative energy sources. Sustainable and renewable energy resources are being intensively pursued owing to the diminishing supply of fossil fuels and climate change. The exploration of practical techniques for overcome current energy has become an urgent need. Recently, functional nanomaterials have attracted considerable attention due to their superior properties, such as large surface area, favorable transport properties, altered physical properties, and confinement effects as well as their wide potential in energy related applications.  However, utilizing these nanomaterials alone cannot meet enough demand in energy fields. To further improve the performance of nanomaterials, the functionalization of nanomaterials including structure optimization and composite structure began to develop rapidly. Nevertheless, the design of functional nanocomposites still needs some breakthroughs, including understanding the reaction behavior at the nanoscale, exploring the relationship between functionalization and their performance, and studying the potential chemical and physical mechanisms of functional nanocomposites.

This special issue mainly focuses on the energy storage applications of advanced functional nanocomposites and assists in the development of efficient, fast, and low-cost energy storage related techniques, including rechargeable batteries, electrochemical capacitors, electrocatalysis, etc. We welcome original research and review articles and sincerely hope that this special issue will provide some new ideas for energy storage applications of functional nanocomposites.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Design and synthesis of functional nanocomposites
  • Simulation and machine learning of functional nanocomposites
  • Functional nanocomposites for lithium/sodium ion battery
  • Functional nanocomposites for zinc ion battery
  • Functional nanocomposites for desalination battery
  • Functional nanocomposites for supercapacitor
  • Functional nanocomposites for capacitor
  • Functional nanocomposites for electrocatalysis
  • Functional nanocomposites for flexible energy storage
  • Functional nanocomposites for new type energy storage
