Composite Materials for Energy Management

About this Research Topic

The growing rate of activities in different industrial sectors and global climate change have huge effects on human health. Therefore, safe energy production and distribution are in need. In this aspect, the development of safe and sustainable energy technologies is challenged to improve the quality of our life.

Composite materials with different sizes, structures, and morphologies have been attracting much attention for the manufacturing of high-performance functional devices. The synthesis and characterization of complex structures by the combination of organic and inorganic materials is an important and perspective research subject in the field of materials science.

In recent years, intensive studies have been carried out for the development of fundamental and functional properties of composite materials based on polymers (semiconductors, electrolytes, elastomers), ceramics (perovskites, metal oxides, fibers/nanoparticles reinforcement) and carbonaceous materials. These studies opened new opportunities for the application of organic and inorganic materials in electrochemical energy storage methods and in solar energy conversion.

This topic focuses on the recent achievements and challenges in complex structures based on semiconductor and/or electrolyte materials for their application in energy management. Areas of interest could include, but are not limited to:

• Optimization and development in synthesis methods (doping, functionalization, composites) for electrochemical processes
• Synthesis of doped and functionalized composite materials for electrode structures
• Synthesis of doped and functionalized composite materials for energy conversion
• Synthesis of new composite structures for high energy density and high capacity batteries


Keywords: Energy storage, Composites, Doping, Functionalization, semiconductors, electrolytes


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
