WEB From 0D to 3D Nanocarbon-Containing Composites: A Voyage at the NanoscaleWednesday (01.01.2020) 00:30 - 00:45 Part of:
There is an urgent need to develop “green”, i.e. environmentally friendly, and technologically sustainable concepts and materials formulations to generate clean energy. Within this context, carbon-based materials and (nano)composites have been shown to be highly promising for energy conversion and storage purposes.
In the present talk, synthetic strategies to access nanocomposites containing 0D-nanocarbon (nanodiamond, onion-like carbon, bucky nanodiamonds), 1D-nanocarbon (carbon nanotubes and graphene scrolls), 2D-nanocarbon (graphene and nanographene), as well as 3D-nanocarbon (multilayer graphene) dispersed phases will be introduced. The prepared materials will be discussed within the context of their preparative accessibility from tailor-made single source precursors as well as their thermodynamic stability. Moreover, selected functional properties thereof will be highlighted and assessed in the light of prospective energy-related applications.
