Advances and challenges of green materials for electronics and energy storage applications: from design to end-of-life recovery

Author affiliations

Abstract

Harnessing biomass to fabricate electronic devices has lately drawn significant research attention because it not only represents a promising strategy for making materials but is also beneficial for the sustainable development of technologies. Numerous recent studies have demonstrated that green materials are promising candidates for synthesizing high-performance materials, such as biopolymers and hierarchical porous carbons. To catch up with this emerging tide, we have here compiled a comprehensive overview of state-of-the-art green materials, with a specific emphasis on recent progress in biodegradable polymeric materials and biomass-based carbon materials, together with their electronics and energy storage applications. Besides, we also assess the performance of end-of-life electronics recycling to highlight the merits of integrating green design with resource recovery.
