Summary:
Metal Oxide-Carbon Hybrid Materials reviews the advances in the fabrication and application of metal oxide-carbon-based nano-composite materials. Their unique properties make them ideal materials for gas sensing, photonics, catalysis, opto-electronic and energy storage applications. In section one, the historical background of the hybrid materials based on metal oxides-carbon and the hybridized metal oxides composites is provided. It also highlights several popular methods for the preparation of metal oxides-carbon composites through solid state or solution phase reactions, and extensively discusses the materials' properties. Fossil fuels and renewable energy sources cannot meet the ever-increasing energy demand of an industrialized and technology-driven global society. Therefore, the role of metal oxide-carbon- composites in energy generation, hydrogen production and storage devices such as rechargeable batteries and supercapacitors is of extreme importance. These problems are discussed in in in section two of the book. Rapid industrialization has resulted in serious environmental issues which in turn have caused serious health problems, which require immediate attention of researchers. In section three, the use of metal oxide-carbon composites in water purification, photodegradation of industrial contaminants and biomedical applications can help to clean the environment and provide better healthcare solutions. The last section is devoted to the consideration of problems associated with the development of sensors for various applications. Numerous studies performed in this area have shown that the use of composites can significantly improve the operating parameters of such devices. Metal Oxide-Carbon Hybrid Materials presents a comprehensive review of the science related to metal oxide-carbon composites and how researchers are utilizing these materials to provide solutions to a large array of problems. Reviews the fundamental properties and fabrication methods of metal-oxide-carbon composites Discusses applications in energy including, energy generation, hydrogen production and storage, rechargeable batteries, and supercapacitors Includes current and emerging applications in environmental remediation and sensing
