About this book

The energy crisis and pollution have posed significant risks to the environment, transportation, and economy over the last century. Thus, green energy becomes one of the critical global technologies and the use of nanomaterials in these technologies is an important and active research area. This book series presents the progress and opportunities in green energy sustainability. Developments in nanoscaled electrocatalysts, solid oxide and proton exchange membrane fuel cells, lithium ion batteries, and photovoltaic techniques comprise the area of energy storage and conversion. Developments in carbon dioxide (CO2) capture and hydrogen (H2) storage using tunable structured materials are discussed. Design and characterization of new nanoscaled materials with controllable particle size, structure, shape, porosity and band gap to enhance next generation energy systems are also included.

The technical topics covered in this series are metal organic frameworks, nanoparticles, nanocomposites, proton exchange membrane fuel cell catalysts, solid oxide fuel cell electrode design, trapping of carbon dioxide, and hydrogen gas storage.

About the authors

Dr. Bashir was chair of the American Chemical Society (ACS) South Texas Region (2011–2012); Dr. Liu was secretary/treasurer of the same section (2010–2011). Part of their leadership role was to invite elite speakers from top universities to come to the south Texas region to give technical presentations.

In 2012–2013, both Drs. Bashir and Liu co-organized a symposium on behalf of the National ACS Conference (COLLOIDAL division) in Indianapolis, IN, related to colloidal based bottom-up synthesis in nanofabrication related to environmental and energy aspects. At that conference, Dr. Liu separately co-organized energy talks on behalf of the ACS ENERGY division.

In March 2014, both Drs. Bashir and Liu co-organized an ACS symposium (COLLOIDAL division) in Dallas, TX, related to environmental cleanup using nano-engineered systems.

Both editors are therefore well known and well connected in this field to put forth an excellent book on this topic.
