About this book

This book provides a comprehensive review of functional nanomaterials for electrochemical applications, presenting interesting examples of nanomaterials with different dimensions and their applications in electrochemical energy storage. It also discusses the synthesis of functional nanomaterials, including quantum dots; one-dimensional, two-dimensional and three-dimensional nanostructures; and advanced nanocomposites. Highlighting recent advances in current electrochemical energy storage hotpots: lithium batteries, lithium-ion batteries, sodium-ion batteries, other metal-ion batteries, halogen ion batteries, and metal–gas batteries, this book will appeal to readers in the various fields of chemistry, material science and engineering.

About the authors

Huan Pang received his Ph.D. from Nanjing University in 2011, and is currently a University Distinguished Professor at Yangzhou University and a Chinese Ministry of Education Young Changjiang Scholars. His group has been engaged in the design and synthesis of functional nanomaterials, especially MOF-based materials. He has published more than 200 papers in peer-reviewed journals such as Chemical Society Reviews, Advanced Materials, and Energy & Environmental Science. He is a member in the editorial board of FlatChem and Rare Metals, young editorial board member of the Chinese Journal of Inorganic Chemistry and Chinese Chemical letters, and a managing editor of EnergyChem. His research interests include the development of inorganic nanostructures and their applications in nanoelectrochemistry, with a focus on energy devices.

Xiaoyu Cao obtained his doctorate from Wuhan University in 2006, and he has been a Professor of Physical Chemistry at Henan University of Technology since 2014. He is currently engaged in research on electrochemical energy conversion and storage, involving electrode materials for lithium-ion and sodium-ion batteries, such as novel synthesis routes, characterizations and electrochemical modifications of high-performance vanadate (lithium trivanadate, lithium vanadium phosphate, silver vanadate, and copper vanadate), Li-Ni-Co-Mn triplet compounds, lithium titanate, and zinc selenide electrode materials.

Limin Zhu received her Ph.D. degree from Wuhan University in 2013. She is currently an Associate Professor at Henan University of Technology, China. Her group has been engaged in the design and synthesis of cathode and anode materials for secondary batteries, especially for lithium-ion batteries and sodium-ion batteries. She has published more than 40 papers in peer-reviewed journals such as Chemistry of Materials, Chemical Engineering Journal, and ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces. Her research interests include the development of organic and inorganic compounds and their applications in secondary batteries.

Mingbo Zheng obtained his doctorate from Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics in 2009. He was a Postdoctoral Researcher at Nanjing University from 2009 to 2012, and an Associate Researcher at Nanjing University from 2012 to 2015. He spent 6 months at The National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST), Japan, from December 2012 to May 2013. He has been an Associate Professor of Chemistry at Yangzhou University since 2015. He has published more than 130 papers in peer-reviewed journals such as Advanced Functional Materials, Small, Nano Research, Journal of Materials Chemistry A, NPG Asia Materials, and Chemical Communications. His current interests include the preparation and application of nanomaterials and porous materials for supercapacitors, lithium-ion batteries, lithium-sulfur batteries, and lithium-air batteries.
