Nanostructured electrode materials have exhibited unrivaled electrochemical properties in creating elite supercapacitors. Morphology Design Paradigm for Supercapacitors presents the latest advances in the improvement of supercapacitors due to the incorporation of nanomaterials into the design; from zero-dimensional to three-dimensional, and microporous to mesoporous. Coverage includes basic comprehension of capacitive practices at sub-atomic and nanoscales to enhance device performance for an extensive assortment of potential applications, including customer electronics, wearable gadgets, hybrid electric vehicles, stationary and industrial frameworks.

Key Features:

  • Provides readers with a clear understanding of the execution of these materials as electrodes in electrochemical supercapacitors.
  • Covers recent material designs and an extensive scope of electrode materials such as 0D to 3D.
  • Explores recent nanostructured system material designs that have been created and tested in supercapacitor configurations.
  • Considers microporous to mesoporous supercapacitor electrode materials.
  • Features the impact of nanostructures on the properties of supercapacitors; including specific capacitance, cycle stability, and rate capability.
