Abstract C onjugated M icroporous P olymers (CMPs) are emerging as an important class of materials, finding application in many fields, with applications in energy storage of current importance and significance. We have here summarized the potential of this class of materials, and progress made in the field of energy storage focusing on supercapacitors, lithium and sodium ion batteries. Owing to the high surface areas of these materials, the unique charge storage processes found in CMPs are disc...

Three-dimensional (3D) current collectors have shown great potential in realizing practical Li metal anodes for next-generation high-energy battery systems. However, 3D current collectors suffer from a common phenomenon of preferential Li accumulation on the top surface due to lack of regulation to Li-ion transport. This study achieves dual-regulation of ion/electron in 3D Cu-CuxO host by porous CuxO nanowires vertically aligned on the skeleton of commercial-available Cu foam, whereby Li is guid...

To develop ultra-fast charging and long-life lithium ion batteries, a surface-controlled pseudo-capacitive reaction mechanism for high-performance organic lithium ion batteries is developed based on a coaxial nanocomposite of active anthraquinone-based Covalent Organic Framework (AQ-COF) and carbon nanotubes. AQ-COF was grown on the surface of carbon nanotubes (AQ-COF@CNTs) through an in-situ polymerization to improve the conductivity and to facilitate the electrochemical properties. AQ-COF grow...

The research in advanced functional polymers is being driven by the fast-growing demand of new functional materials for revolutionary technologies. Polymers can be endowed with functions by the use of some special preparation methods or by introducing functional groups or fillers into materials. These functions are either possessed intrinsically by materials or actuated by external stimuli. In this review, we present an overview of the recent developments in research hotspots of functional polym...

Although lithium metal is an ideal anode with high theoretical capacity, Li dendrite formation and volume change have limited its application. We report a vertical polyaniline nanowire-coated carbon nanotube (CNT/PANI) composite flexible electrode on which Li could be homogeneously deposited to obtain a CNT/PANI@Li anode. In the composite, CNT/PANI acted as a host matrix with well-distributed Li ion flux attributed to high electroactive surface area, thereby effectively suppressing the Li dendri...

: Advancement in mobile electronics is driving progress in lithium ion batteries. Recently, organic electrode materials have emerged as promising candidates for lithium ion batteries due to their high theoretical capacity, ease of synthesis, versatility of structure, and abundance. Polymerization is a strategy used to overcome the issues associated with small organic molecules for charge storage application. The focus of this review is on the most recent progress in the field of polymeric carbon...

A binder-free, self-supported, flexible cathode is explored for application in flexible lithium–sulfur (Li–S) batteries. The cathode is constructed using nitrogen (N)-doped carbon foam/carbon nanotubes (CNTs) as the scaffold and filled with poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene) (PEDOT)-encapsulated sulfur nanoparticles as the active material. The dense CNTs coated on the skeleton of the 3D N-doped foam enhance flexibility, and the highly conductive CNTs are crossed and twined together to create an in...

Transfer of molecular chirality to supramolecular chirality at nanoscale and microscale by chemical self-assembly has been studied intensively for years. However, how such molecular chirality further transfers to the macroscale along the same path remains elusive. Here we reveal how the chirality from molecular level transfers to macroscopic level via self-assembly. We assemble a macrostripe using enantiomeric camphorsulfonic acid (CSA)-doped polyaniline with hierarchical order. The stripe can t...
