This focus issue is dedicated to Prof B.R.MehtaIndian Institute of Technology Delhi, in recognition of his research efforts in this field.
This focus issue on Nanomaterials for Sustainable and Net-zero Future aims to collate the latest developments and advances in the field of nanomaterials for a cleaner, greener, and sustainable planet. The collection incorporates elements of energy storage, energy conversion, environment remediation aimed at water and air pollutants, and carbon sequestration. Sub-themes covered in the collection include:

  • Energy Storage Materials and Devices: (Batteries, Supercapacitors etc.)
  • Emerging Energy Conversion Devices and Concepts: (Ex. emerging photovoltaics; Thermoelectric; Piezoelectric; Triboelectric generators etc., Fuel cell and H2 generation technologies, etc)
  • Environment remediation (Photocatalysis for water and air remediation etc)
  • Nanomaterials for Carbon Capture, Utilization and Storage: (CO2 storage, CO2 reduction, etc.)

The contributions can cover both fundamental and applied aspects of the above topics. As the world population increases, demand for energy increases. For a sustainable and net-zero future, governments should globally focus on strategizing energy supply with a futuristic view of harnessing all available options. This includes solar and other renewable sources of energy, harvesting waste energy, exploiting the full potential of hydrogen as fuel in addition to laying off dependence on non-renewable sources of energy. The long-term effects on environment and public health will be safeguarded via these approaches. The first two subthemes are related to these issues. The third and the fourth subthemes are related to the role of nanomaterials for environmental cause, which can include air and water remediation, photocatalysis, carbon sequestration, capture of other pollutants (like nitrous oxide, carbon monoxide, volatile organic compounds, heavy metals, etc.) Research in these areas cause positive changes in the environment. The focus issue welcomes submissions from women and/or underrepresented sociocultural research groups. All of the above subthemes revolve around nanomaterials that weave energy, environment, health, and society subject matters for a better and sustainable net-zero world.
