Conducting Polymers-Based Energy Storage Materials
Conducting polymers are organic polymers which contain conjugation along the polymer backbone that conduct electricity. Conducting polymers are promising materials for energy storage applications because of their fast charge–discharge kinetics, high charge density, fast redox reaction, low-cost, ease of synthesis, tunable morphology, high power capability and excellent intrinsic conductivity compared with inorganic-based materials. Conducting Polymers-Based Energy Storage Materials surveys recent advances in conducting polymers and their composites addressing the execution of these materials as electrodes in electrochemical power sources.
- Provides an overview on the conducting polymer material properties, fundamentals and their role in energy storage applications.
- Deliberates cutting-edge energy storage technology based on synthetic metals (conducting polymers)
- Covers current applications in next-generation energy storage devices.
- Explores the new aspects of conducting polymers with processing, tunable properties, nanostructures and engineering strategies of conducting polymers for energy storage.
- Presents up-to-date coverage of a large, rapidly growing and complex conducting polymer literature on all-types electrochemical power sources.
