Advances in polymer nanocomposites for anticorrosion applications
Polymer nanocomposites have attracted significant research interests due to their promising potential for versatile applications ranging from environmental remediation, energy storage, electromagnetic (EM) absorption, sensing and actuation, transportation and safety, defense systems, information industry, to novel catalysts, etc.
Solving energy and environmental issues
In particular, polymer nanocomposites have attracted intensive research interest for solving both energy and environmental issues. A review paper by Chinese researchers mainly focuses on the most recent advances in polymer nanocomposites for energy storage (i.e., electrochemical capacitors and batteries), energy saving (i.e., electrochromic devices and carbon dioxide capture), and anticorrosion (conductive and non-conductive polymer nanocomposite anticorrosive coatings) applications.
