Journal of Materials Chemistry A, published by the Royal Society of Chemistry, is pleased to announce an open call for papers for our upcoming themed collection on:
Design and characterization of flexible electrode materials
This collection will be Guest Edited by:
Professor Xiu Song (George) Zhao, Qingdao University
Professor Hui Ying Yang, Singapore University of Technology and Design, Singapore
Professor Li Qiang, Qingdao University, China
Scope of the collection
The design and characterization of flexible electrode materials, situated at the confluence of materials chemistry and engineering, holds pivotal significance for society. Through tailoring composition, structure, and mechanical properties, these materials optimize performance and adaptability in flexible electronics. This bears remarkable implications: from wearable health monitors to sustainable energy solutions. The historical trajectory highlights an evolution from rigid electrodes to innovative materials like conductive polymers, carbon nanotubes, and graphene. This progression, propelled by a nuanced understanding of materials chemistry, enables precise manipulation of materials properties.
The field’s connection with materials chemistry lies in its ability to engineer molecular structures, surface attributes, and interfacial interactions to fine-tune conductivity, electrochemical performance, and mechanical resilience. This harmony between chemistry and engineering ensures materials not only exhibit exceptional traits but also endure real-world demands. This dynamic interplay of science and engineering catalyzes wearable tech, energy storage, and beyond, showcasing the transformative potential of materials chemistry in reshaping technology and enhancing human life.
