- Discusses the use of electrospun materials in energy devices, including low- and high-temperature fuel cells, hydrogen storage, dye-sensitized solar cells, lithium-ion batteries, and supercapacitors
- Explores environmental applications of electrospun fibers, such as the use of electrospinning-issued materials in membranes for water and air purification, as well as in sensors and biosensors for pollution control
Beneficial to both academic and industrial audiences, Electrospinning for Advanced Energy and Environmental Applicationspresents basic electrospinning approaches and their advantages in dedicated applications, while providing a review of the latest advances and technical challenges associated with electrospun materials. The book serves as a reference for field newcomers and experts alike, inspiring new ideas and developments for future energy and environmental applications.
Electrospinning is emerging as a promising technique to prepare nano/micromaterials of fibrous morphology. Its versatility allows the production of organic, inorganic and composite nanofibres as well as the possibility of creating and controlling their assemblies and architectures. The nanofibrous materials elaborated with such technique are finding wide applications in energy conversion and storage devices as well as in depollution and filtration media. This book provides a general overview of the electrospun materials for these energy and environment applications.
