Metallopolymers for energy production, storage and conservation
With the worldwide awareness of the energy crisis and low carbon economy, there is an ever-growing demand for renewable energy resources, energy saving products and reliable energy storage devices. Metallopolymers play an increasingly important role as functional materials for energy production, conservation and storage. In this review, we explore the recent advances of metallopolymers in the areas of organic solar cells, white light organic light-emitting diodes and lithium-ion batteries. The structure–property relationship of these polymers and their device performances are paid special attention and described.
