Advances in Metal Oxides and their Composites for Emerging Applications provides an overview of the latest advances in research of metal oxide-based composites and their key applications in energy and other important technologies. Various strategies for engineering the properties of host metal oxides, protocols for chemical transformations as well as fabrication of devices with their performance measurements techniques are discussed in detail. An overview of metal oxide-based composites and their use in energy applications are included such as energy harvesting and storage and environmental remediation.

The book reviews the key properties of metal-oxide based composites such as structural, physicochemical, optical, electrical and their resulting performance in a wide range of diverse applications. Synthetic protocols used to create metal oxides with desirable morphologies, properties and performance for applications in solar energy harvesting, energy storage and environmental remediation are emphasized. Emerging technologies enabled by metal oxide-based composites are touched on including those that address important global challenges such as energy shortage, the hazardous effects of non-renewable energy sources, unaffordable energy technologies, and the contaminants present in air and water.

Advances in Metal Oxides and their Composites for Emerging Applications is suitable for materials scientists and engineers working in academia and R&D. It’s appropriate for those who are either new entrants in the field who would like an introduction to potential research directions or experienced researchers and practitioners looking for a key reference on the latest advances.
