Polymer nanocomposites for energy storage, energy saving, and anticorrosion

Author affiliations

Abstract

Polymer nanocomposites exhibit unique physicochemical properties that cannot be obtained with individual components acting alone. Polymer nanocomposites have attracted significant research interests due to their promising potential for versatile applications ranging from environmental remediation, energy storage, electromagnetic (EM) absorption, sensing and actuation, transportation and safety, defense systems, information industry, to novel catalysts, etc. In particular, polymer nanocomposites have attracted intensive research interest for solving both energy and environmental issues. This review paper mainly focuses on the most recent advances in polymer nanocomposites for energy storage (i.e., electrochemical capacitors and batteries), energy saving (i.e., electrochromic devices and carbon dioxide capture), and anticorrosion (conductive and non-conductive polymer nanocomposite anticorrosive coatings) applications.
