Our Institute of advanced materials and nanotechnology publishes articles in international TOP journals


On September  20, the Institute of Advanced Materials and Nanotechnology of our university  published the title Recent Progress of Nanostructured Transition Metal Nitrides  for Advanced Electrochemical Energy Storage in Journal of Materials Chemistry A  (Journal of Materials Chemistry A). A review of the research progress in energy  storage applications) was selected as a cover article.

Professor Huo  Kaifu of the Institute of Advanced Materials and Nanotechnology is the  correspondent author, and the State Key Laboratory of Refractory and Metallurgy  is the first unit.

Journal of  Material Chemistry A is an international academic journal of the Royal Society  of Chemistry. It is an international top journal of Engineering technology. The  impact factor in 2018 is 9.931. It has a very high academic influence in  chemistry, energy, materials and related fields.

The  electrochemical energy storage devices such as batteries and capacitors are very  important for the development of electric vehicles, mobile electronic products,  smart grid and artificial intelligence. Designing high performance electrode  materials is the key scientific issue for developing electrochemical energy  storage devices. Transition metal nitrides have attracted much attention in the  field of electrochemical energy storage due to their high conductivity, high  density, large pseudocapacitance and excellent electrocatalytic activity. In  recent years, the Academy of Advanced Materials and Nanotechnology has carried  out in-depth research on the design, electrochemical performance regulation and  energy storage devices of high performance transition metal nitride electrode  materials. In Adv. Mater. (IF = 21.950), Nano Energy (IF = 13.120), J. Mater.  Chem. A (IF = 9.931), Nanoscale (IF = 7. 233), more than 20 articles on SCI area  have been published in academic journals such as Chem. Commun. (IF=6.290).

This review  mainly summarizes and reviews the latest developments of transition metal  nitrides in electrochemical energy storage devices such as high performance  supercapacitors, lithium sulfur batteries, lithium ion batteries and lithium ion  hybrid capacitors, with emphasis on the design strategies of transition metal  nitrides electrode materials, problems and future prospects in this field. The  development direction is summarized and prospected.

Reviewers gave  a high evaluation, saying that the review systematically summarized the research  progress of transition metal nitride electrode materials, summarized in a timely  manner, is very important, is conducive to a more comprehensive and in-depth  understanding of the relevant research progress and future development direction  of scholars in this field.

The research  results have been funded and supported by the National Natural Science  Foundation of China, the major technical innovation projects of Hubei Province  and the post-doctoral Xiangjiang Scholars program of China. (News Centre)
