The rapid growth of the population and global economy has significantly increased the demand for energy consumption. Due to concerns about the severe environmental impacts of fossil fuels and the increasing demand for grid energy storage and consumer electronic devices, efficient energy storage systems are highly desired. Electrochemical energy storage EES devices are particularly useful for portable electronic devices and hybrid electric vehicles. Among various emerging EES technologies, supercapacitors SCs , have attracted tremendous attention because of their high power density, high rate capability, long cycling life and safe operation. Metal Oxides in Supercapacitors addresses the fundamentals of metal oxide-based supercapacitors and provides an overview of recent advancements in this area. Metal oxides attract most of the materials scientists due to their excellent physico-chemical properties and stability in electrochemical systems. This justification for the usage of metal oxides as electrode materials in supercapacitors is their potential to attain high capacitance at low cost. After providing the principles, the heart of the book discusses recent advances including: binary metal oxides-based supercapacitors, nanotechnology, ternary metal oxides, polyoxometalates, and hybrids. Moreover, the factors affecting the charge storage mechanism of metal oxides will be explored in detail. The electrolytes which are soul of supercapacitors and mostly ignored character of investigations will be exposed in depth. The fabrications and different designs of the supercapacitors along with their merits and demerits will be explored. Lastly, the market status of supercapacitors and discussion pointing out the future scope and directions of next generation metal oxides based supercapacitors. Metal Oxides in Supercapacitors comprehensive look at the latest, cutting-edge research as well as presentation of the building blocks of this topic will be useful to industry experts as well as new entrants to the field. This book will explore the most recent advances made in metal oxides in supercapacitors Discusses cutting-edge nanotechnology for supercapacitors Includes fundamental properties of metal oxides in supercapacitors that can be used to guide and promote technology development Contains contributions from international leading scientists active in supercapacitor research and manufacturing
