Recent advances in the template-confined synthesis of two-dimensional materials for aqueous energy storage devices
The template-confined synthesis strategy is a simple and effective methodology to prepare two-dimensional nanomaterials. It has multiple advantages including green process, controllable morphology and adjustable crystal structure, and therefore, it is promising in the energy storage realm to synthesize high-performance electrode materials. In this review, we summarize the recent advances in the template-confined synthesis of two-dimensional nanostructures for aqueous energy storage applications. The material design is discussed in detail to accommodate target usage in aqueous supercapacitors and zinc metal batteries. The remaining challenges and future prospective are also covered.
