The continuous pursuit of better human life promotes the ceaseless advances of intelligent community. Flexible batteries have emerged as a brand new form to compensate or even replace traditional rigid-materials-based energy storage. Owing to their distinct merits in terms of ductility, stretchability, ultrathinness etc., flexible batteries can be seamlessly mounted onto the human skin or other complex object surfaces, which unprecedentedly bridges our human body, environment and machines. They have presented diverse intriguing applications in healthcare, human–machine–environment interfaces, energies, intelligent robots, Internet of Things etc. Therefore, they have been considered next-generation smart electronics.
There are a variety of categories of flexible batteries, such as batteries, supercapacitors, and solar cells. In principle, two strategies are employed to construct flexible batteries, including materials innovation and structural design. In particular, functional nanomaterials are considered indispensable parts of flexible batteries. The past decade has witnessed the development of various functional nanomaterials, mainly including nanoparticles, nanowires, nanosheets and nanoporous materials.
Therefore, the development of functional nanomaterials is of high significance for practical applications of flexible batteries. The purpose of this Special Issue is to present the latest state-of-the-art research progress on emerging nanomaterials for flexible batteries as well as research trends and application prospects. Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Nanoparticles on flexible batteries;
- Nanowires on flexible batteries;
- Nanosheets on flexible batteries;
- Nanoporous materials on flexible batteries;
- Hydrogels on flexible batteries;
- Liquid metal on flexible batteries;
- Polymers on flexible batteries;
- Composites on flexible batteries.
Related applications include (but are not limited to):
- Wearable energy storage;
- Flexible supercapacitors;
- Flexible solar cells.
