Robust and High Performance Electromaterials for Energy Transformation and Storage
thesisposted on 2019-07-16, 03:39 authored by MANJUNATH CHATTI
Fossil fuels have been playing a central role in satisfying the global energy demands of humanity for many years. However, depletion of these natural resources and the environmental damage resulting from their use necessitate urgent development of and transition to the sustainable renewable energy sources. Achievement of this goal in the 21st century will ensure prosperous and safe future for humanity and the planet. This dissertation presents research work towards the development of new high-performance and less expensive electromaterials based on earth-abundant transition metals with the global aim of advancing the existing energy storage, and most importantly, energy conversion technologies.
