Advanced nanomaterials, such as 2D layered materials, nanoparticles, quantum dots, nanosheets, nano carbons, nanoporous polymers, and porous organic polymers, have been received interest for clean energy and environmental applications thanks to their unique and special properties, such as their high surface to volume ratios, enhanced transport properties, and confinement effects resulting from the nanoscale dimensions. The motivation is to develop advanced nanomaterials with diverse functionalities, with the aim of achieving high power density, large energy density, and high energy-conversion efficiency in energy storage and conversion devices.
This Special Issue on the “Recent Advances in Functionalized Nanomaterials for Energy Applications” will focus on the design and development of advanced nanomaterials for Lithium ion batteries, post lithium batteries, secondary batteries, supercapacitors, hybrid capacitors, solar cells, photovoltaics, photocatalysis, hydrogen generation, electrocatalysis, gas storage systems, thermoelectrics, and heterogeneous catalysis, with great potential for use in future consumer products, ranging from modern electronics to electric grids and electric vehicles with arbitrarily shaped surfaces. This Special Issue is intended to present and discuss recent challenges and technological advancements in the production of functional nanomaterials and their applications in energy harvesting and energy storage devices for flexible applications.
On this occasion, we would like to invite you to submit your original research paper or comprehensive review on advanced functional nanomaterials for energy and sustainability applications for inclusion in this high-profile Special Issue of Materials.
