Nano-Materials for energy storage
High-efficiency energy storage devices are one of the greatest scientific and engineering challenges to power the various electronic equipment of the twenty-first century and this instigated research on innovative energy storage devices. Recently, transition metal chalcogenides, specifically molybdenum chalcogenides, have got great attention of the researchers due to their amazing physicochemical as well as mechanical properties. Owing to its high anisotropy and distinct crystal structure, numerous reports indicate that nanostructured MoS2, with the merits of low cost and prominent properties, is an excellent substitute for environmentally benign energy conversion and for use in storage devices like supercapacitors.
