Title : A novel microwave energy-based approach to hybrid nanomaterial preparation for electrochemical energy storage purposes


Hybrid nanomaterials (HNMs), composed of carbonized conducting polymer (CCP), e.g. polypyrrole (PPy), nanoparticles (NPs) with simultaneously grown carbon nanotubes’ (CNTs) and metal oxide nanowires’ (MONWs) coverage on their surface were prepared for electrochemical energy storage purposes. In order to both obtain this novel HNM and to overcome the common challenges in conventional synthesis methods, a simple and straightforward in-situ polymerization/coating approach was systematically combined with the modified version of a well-established, facile, and rapid ex-situ microwave (MW) energy-based approach, i.e. PopTube. This highly efficient and easily scalable combined approach could effectively manage the production of targeted HNMs, in an affordable manner, with unique morphological (SEM/TEM), elemental (EDX), spectroscopic (XRD, Raman) and electrochemical (CV) features, all of which are strongly supported by both indicated material characterization test results and the relevant literature data. Thus, it is believed that the as-prepared CNT and MONW decorated CCPNPs (CNT&[email protected]) through this combined approach would soon become a preferred material for the above-mentioned purposes with respect to its promising features.


Dr. Poyraz studied Polymer and Fiber Engineering at Auburn University, USA and graduated as MS in 2010, and as PhD in 2014, respectively. He then joined the Departments of Textile Engineering at Tekirda? Nam?k Kemal University in 2015, and at Ad?yaman University in Turkey in 2018 as an Assistant Professor, respectively. He has published more than 20 research articles in SCI(E) journals.
