Synthesis of inorganic energy materials

From the book Frontiers of Science and Technology

  • Christina S. Birkel


The development of new - cheaper, more efficient, more sustainable, more reliable - functional materials with useful properties calls for ever-improving, smart and innovative synthesis strategies. A multitude of inorganic compounds are already used as energy materials, i. e., electrodes, catalysts, permanent magnets and many more are considered highly promising for these and similar applications. For the optimization of the preparation of the respective materials, a broad knowledge of possible synthesis techniques is required and some of them are highlighted in this chapter. Furthermore, (micro)structure-determining processing techniques are addressed and discussed in the context of thermoelectric materials.
