Energy Device Applications of Synthesized 1D Polymer Nanomaterials
Wei Xu, Jianhua Hao, Long-Biao Huang
1D polymer nanomaterials as emerging materials, such as nanowires, nanotubes, and nanopillars, have attracted extensive attention in academia and industry. The distinctive, various, and tunable structures in the nanoscale of 1D polymer nanomaterials present nanointerfaces, high surface-to-volume ratio, and large surface area, which can improve the performance of energy devices. In this review, representative fabrication techniques of 1D polymer nanomaterials are summarized, including electrospinning, template-assisted, template-free, and inductively coupled plasma methods. The recent advancements of 1D polymer nanomaterials in energy device applications are demonstrated. Lastly, existing challenges and prospects of 1D polymer nanomaterials for energy device applications are presented. 1D polymer nanomaterials with the merits of nanointerfaces, high surface area, and porous structure have widely been applied to improve the performances of advanced energy devices. Herein, the representative fabrication methods of 1D polymer nanomaterials are summarized in combination with an overview of typical energy devices, including nanogenerators, lithium-ion batteries, and supercapacitors.
