Cellulose nanocrystals in nanoarchitectonics – towards photonic functional materials
This review summarizes the recent achievements in the development of photonic functional materials based on cellulose nanocrystals (CNCs) and CNC templating. The unique self-assembly of CNCs into chiral nematic structures introduces photonic properties for the development of functional materials with application potential in photonic sensing, tunable reflectors or optoelectronics.
Li- and Mn-rich layered oxide cathode materials for lithium-ion batteries: a review from fundamentals to research progress and applications
Li- and Mn-rich layered oxides (LMRO) have drawn much attention for application as cathode materials for lithium-ion batteries due to their high-energy density of over 1000 W h kg−1.
