Beyond Nanomaterials

The prospects in nanomaterial-driven technological breakthroughs are providing a strong research thrust in the area of energy conversion, storage, sensor, theranosis, environmental remediation, etc. While the past decades have witnessed a great surge of nanomaterials and their applications, the desire for new nanomaterials and designs for unexpected properties, groundbreaking improvements in performance, and novel applications never ceases to fuel the research interest. This thematic series in Nano Convergence covers nanomaterial synthesis and hybridization and their applications in energy conversion, storage, sensor, theranosis, environmental remediation, etc, in the hope to provide a guideline for future developments in these fields.
