Synthesis of a high quality carbon-based nanomaterials from different renewable materials are critical and crucial for application in energy storage, such as Li-ion batteries, Na-ion batteries. Transition metal oxides possess high theoretical specific capacity, environmentally friendliness, good safety and low cost-effectiveness. Unfortunately, they are suffering pulverization problems due to drastic volumetric change during the lithiation/delithiation processes, which results to severe capacity fading, erratic cycling stability and poor rate performances. Amount of strategies have been employed to overcome the above-mentioned demerits, such as structure improvement (e.g. porous structures). The combination of binary transition metal oxides with carbon-based nanomaterials from different renewable materials, such as graphene, metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) and MXene can significantly tune the properties of the hybrid materials with enhanced performance for energy storage applications. The carbon-based nanomaterials from different renewable materials with porous structures are favorable to produce more accessible electroactive sites, enhance the storage capabilities and alleviate the pulverization of electrodes, and consequently offer excellent electrochemical performance.
This Special Issue is particularly focusing on the development of advanced porous carbon-based nanomaterials from different renewable materials for metal ion batteries. The scope of this issue can be expanded from the synthesis and design of energy storage materials and composites to the fabrication and applications of these materials.
