Special Issue "Graphene-Nanocomposite-Based Flexible Supercapacitors"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 29 February 2024 | Viewed by 5523
The exclusive and highly explored concept of developing “hybrid” materials with combined properties of two or more components in the last few decades has led to the design of various "complex" materials, beyond the typical approach of material development based on structure–property relationship. Nanocomposites of Graphene or its derivatives are one such class of materials, which have great application prospects in the fields of electrochemical energy storage and gas detection due to their exceptional electronic, mechanical, and chemical properties. However, their rational synthesis with good conductivity, electrochemical activity, greater surface area, and enhanced selective gas sensitivity while maintaining mechanical flexibility is the topical challenge for contemporary wearable high-performance devices such as supercapacitors. The investigation of novel nanocomposite materials based on graphene and its combinations with metal oxides, polymers, carbon nanotubes, etc. for highly flexible/stretchable supercapacitor applications require the dissemination of new and exciting research, and this Special Issue therefore welcomes interesting contributions.
The goal of this Special Issue is to bring together current developments in flexible supercapacitors, with an emphasis on flexible active platforms enabled by graphene nanocomposite materials. The scope also includes fabrication strategies of flexible/stretchable supercapacitors, new device design, integration, and their implementations in different applications. The list of topics this Special Issue covers includes but is not limited to the following:
- Flexible/stretchable supercapacitors;
- Metal-oxides-based graphene nanocomposites;
- Polymers-based graphene nanocomposites;
- Nanocomposites based on graphene and related materials;
- Hybrid graphene nanocomposites with functionalization/doping;
- Synthesis techniques for flexible supercapacitors;
- Engineering strategies for flexible supercapacitors;
- MEMS-based flexible supercapacitors;
- Self-powered sensors coupled with supercapacitors;
- The state of the art and forthcoming prospects: problems and potential solutions.
