    2D nanomaterials have emerged as promising candidates for use in energy devices owing to their superior electrochemical properties, surface area, nanodevice integration, multifunctionality, printability, and mechanical flexibility. 2D Nanomaterials: Chemistry and Properties covers basic concepts, chemistries, and properties along with theoretical considerations in designing new 2D nanomaterials, especially for energy applications.

    This book:

    • Discusses the effect of doping, structural variation, phase, and exfoliation on structural and electrochemical properties of 2D nanomaterials
    • Presents synthesis, characterization, and applications of 2D materials for green energy production and storage
    • Explores new aspects of synthesizing 2D nanomaterials beyond traditionally layered structures
    • Examines challenges in using 2D materials for energy applications

    This book is aimed at materials scientists, chemists, electrochemists, and engineers working in energy disciplines.
