Title : A Novel Combined Approach to Simultaneous Nanostructured Conducting Polymer Carbonization and Carbon Nanotube Metal Oxide Nanowire Growth


Carbonized conducting polymer (CCP), i.e. polypyrrole (PPy), nanostructures with carbon nanotube (CNT) and metal oxide nanowire (MONW) growth on their surface were obtained with a great potential as a building material for advanced engineering applications. A well-established, in-situ polymerization/coating method and a simple and straightforward microwave (MW) energy-based carbonization approach, i.e. PopTube, were systematically combined to prepare this novel material. Through this simple, facile, yet highly efficient, affordable and easily scalable combined synthesis method, it becomes possible to produce such CCPs with unique morphological, spectroscopic, thermal and elemental features, all of which are strongly supported by both various material characterization test results and the relevant literature data. Thus, it is believed that such CNT and MONW decorated CCPs (CNT-MONW/CCP) obtained via the above-mentioned method would soon become a material of preference for a large span of advanced applications in various science and engineering fields.

What will audience learn from your presentation?

  • The audience will learn about the preparation of nanostructured hybrid electrode materials that can be used for electrochemical energy storage applications.
  • This research will help the other faculty or researchers in the audience to expand their relevant research or teaching activities.
  • This research will also provide a practical solution to nanostructured hybrid materials preparation within very short time frames by using microwave energy and could simplify researcher’s job in an efficient manner.
