Polymer Nanocomposites for Energy and Fuel Cell Applications


This chapter provides an overview on the clay- and carbon-based polymer nanocomposites for fuel cell (FC), Li-ion battery, and supercapacitor (SC) applications. Fuel cell is responsible for conversion of chemical energy into electrical energy, whereas Li-ion battery and supercapacitor are mainly responsible for energy storage applications. Here, the applications of nanocomposite membranes for fuel cell application followed by Li-ion battery and supercapacitor applications are described. The working principle, purpose, and physical properties of the nanocomposites are critically described for the aforementioned applications. Finally, the summary and future scopes of the polymer nanocomposites in these fields are described.
