Description

Conducting polymer-based nanocomposites have attracted significant interest in recent research due to their remarkably enhanced electrical, electrochemical, and dielectric properties, which allow for their use in electrochemical sensors, stretchable electronics, supercapacitors, lithium-ion batteries, etc. Compared to other conductive materials (i.e. transition metal nanoparticles, carbon nanotubes, or carbon black), nanostructured conducting polymers have better moldability, processability, and tunability, meaning that they are more easily processed into various forms such as thin films, coatings, powders, and hydrogels in order to effectively establish dynamic interfaces inside the nanocomposites and enrich their essential electrical functions.

This special issue aims to establish an informative and useful collection regarding the fabrication, characterization, and application of conducting polymer nanocomposites in electrodes, electronics, and energy-storage devices.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Novel fabrication techniques of conducting polymer-based nanocomposites
  • Developments and preparations of new structural conformations of conducting polymer-based nanocomposites with enhanced interfacial properties and interactions, and advanced microstructures
  • Applications of conducting polymer-based nanocomposites in sensors, flexible electronics, supercapacitors, and batteries
  • Studies and characterizations of the interfacial electrical, dielectric, and electromagnetic properties of conducting polymer-based nanocomposites including structure-property relationships
  • Simulation and modelling of the molecular structure, morphology, and processing behavior of the conducting polymer-based nanocomposites
