Materials Chemistry in Search of Energy Materials : Photovoltaics and Photoluminescence
One third of world’s total energy is used in production of electricity and one fifth of the total electricity produced in the world is used in lighting. Hence, the materials that have high potential in the field of ...
Exploring Transition Metal Oxides Towards Development of New Functional Materials : Lithium-ion Battery Cathodes, Inorganic Pigments And Frustrated Magnetic Perovskite Oxides
Transition metals (TMs) are ‘elements whose atoms have partially filled d-shell, or which can give rise to cations with an incomplete d-shell’. In TMs, the d-shell overlaps with next higher s-shell. Most of the TMs exhibit ...
High Capacity Porous Electrode Materials of Li-ion Batteries
Lithium-ion battery is attractive for various applications because of its high energy density. The performance of Li-ion battery is influenced by several properties of the electrode materials such as particle size, surface ...
Electrocatalysis using Ceramic Nitride and Oxide Nanostructures
Global warming and depletion in fossil fuels have forced the society to search for alternate, clean sustainable energy sources. An obvious solution to the aforesaid problem lies in electrochemical energy storage systems ...
