    2D nanomaterials have emerged as promising candidates for energy devices owing to their superior electrochemical properties, surface area, nanodevice integration, multifunctionality, printability, and mechanical flexibility. Handbook of 2D Nanomaterials: Fundamentals and Energy Applications, Two-Volume Set summarizes research for different materials in the 2D category such as graphene and its derivatives, transition metal chalcogenides, transition metal oxides/hydroxides, transition metal carbides/nitrides/carbonitrides, and 2D polymers for energy applications such as in batteries, supercapacitors, solar cells, and fuel cells.

    • The first volume covers basics concepts, chemistries, and properties along with theoretical consideration in designing new 2D nanomaterials
    • The second volume covers a wide range of applications of 2D nanomaterials for energy as well as future applications and challenges in fabricating flexible energy generation and storage devices
    • 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
    • Provides detail of novel methods and advanced technologies

    These handbooks are aimed at materials scientists, chemists, electrochemists, and engineers working in energy disciplines.
