About this book

This handbook comprehensively reviews the basic to the most advanced topics in the area of different material systems and their composites for advanced energy applications. It covers materials chemistry, various synthesis approaches, and properties of energy materials in the latest technology developed for energy storage (batteries, supercapacitors, fuel cells, hydrogen energy and carbon capture) and energy conversion (photovoltaics, water electrolysis, piezoelectric, thermoelectric. It provides new direction to the readers to better understand the chemistry behind energy materials and methods to improve performances of energy devices. This book will be a very valuable reference source for (1) Postgraduates students and scientist working in the energy-related field of material science, nanoscience, and nanotechnology (2) Industrial practitioners and engineers from the commercial sectors of green energy production and energy storage.
