Topical D: Nanomaterials for Energy Applications (TD)

#102 - Nanomaterials for Energy Storage I (TD002)
This session seeks contributions pertaining to the development of nanomaterials for energy storage applications. Nano-issues in hydrogen storage materials for on-board and off-board applications and in electrochemical energy storage devices such as batteries and ultracapacitors are leading examples. Synthesis and characterization approaches, studies of kinetics, energy-release mechanisms and catalytic activity in these and other energy storage materials by experimental, theoretical and computational methods are welcome in this session.
