About this Research Topic
The increasing demand for energy in today's world has resulted in significant research into unintended energy sources contributing to an increase in pollutant emissions. This state of affairs requires the development of alternative, environmentally friendly novel nanomaterials as versatile energy sources.
Presently, Metal-Organic Framework (MOF) based nanoscience and technologies are opening a new panorama in the optimization of nanomaterials for ecological energy conversion and storage. There are numerous different directions to push these research fields closer to creating a greener and cleaner world.
This Research Topic covers recent advancements in the thematic area of MOF based nanomaterials being used in energy devices and storage systems. High-quality manuscripts (original research articles, review articles rapid communications, and perspectives) will be accepted from all areas of renewable energy provided nanomaterials are a key element of the research.
Areas of interest could include but are not limited to:
• MOF based nanomaterials for energy storage applications e.g. supercapacitors, batteries
• MOF based nanomaterials for energy conversion e.g. fuel cells, solar cells
Keywords: MOF, metal-organic framework, nanomaterials, energy storage, energy conversion
