Nanomaterials for Sustainable Energy (Hardcover)
About this item
The motivation for alternative sources of energy is driven by societal needs and technical advancements in synthesis, design and characterization. Increases in raw material (oil, coal, natural gas) always lead to a reevaluation towards renewable and sustainable energy. The approach of the current generation is to investigate advanced responsive materials including polymers, ceramics and bi-functionalized materials for sustainable and green energy generation, transport, storage and usage.This book's focus covers the potential applications of nanomaterials in energy generation and storage. All ten chapter authors are leading exponents in their respective fields and have been directly or indirectly involved with the ACS symposium or monograph through a rigorous peer review process. This monograph presents an up-to-date and eminently readable collection of papers in energy conversion, storage, and modeling, which would be of great interest to practitioners, directors, fund and program managers, researchers, and engineers in the field of energy generation and storage.
