Nanomaterials have been considered as the "holy grail” of electrochemical energy storage during recent decades. Compounds and composites made of nanomaterials have opened unexpected research avenues, allowing entire new classes of materials to be explored. Although in theory, the particle's size reduction improves the material performances, practical findings also suggest significant drawbacks connected with "going nano”. Nanomaterials for Electrochemical Energy Storage is an objective, realistic overview of the use of nanomaterials for various rechargeable electrochemical energy storage systems, aiming to fill the gap between academia and industrial applications. The book places emphasis on delivering a clear message regarding the opportunities and critical aspects for the application of nanomaterials in already available commercial devices (i.e., lithium-ion, supercapacitors, lithium-ion capacitors) and on the most promising battery technologies (e.g., lithium-sulphur, sodium-ion, metal-air, multivalent-ion batteries, dual-ion) which could boost the "electric revolution”. The book also covers the use of nanomaterials on two of the most promising research pathways that could further advance the use of electrochemical energy storage systems, specifically solid electrolytes and nanostructured alkali metal interfaces. Finally, the book outlines the practical implications of the use of nanomaterials in developed and future industrial applications. Covers the major nanomaterials classes used for electrochemical energy storage devices Assesses the major challenges of using nanomaterials for energy storage Shows how the use of nanomaterials can lead to lower cost and more efficient energy storage products and devices
