Conjugated Polymer Nanostructures: Characterization

Sardar, S., Ghosh, S.,
Conjugated Polymer Nanostructures for Energy Conversion and Storage Applications


Recently, there has been tremendous progress in the field of conducting polymer nanostructures with the objective of tuning the intrinsic properties, which eventually led to broad applications in the energy domain. The latest advancements in the characterization of conducting polymer nanostructures are summarized in detail. In this chapter, particular attention has been given to characterization techniques in three domains such as microscopy, spectroscopy, and electrochemical method, which display potential utility in applications, including photocatalysis, molecular sensing, etc. The detailed characterization of polymer nanostructures and polymer-based hybrid nanomaterials shed light on understanding the formation and optoelectronic properties for the future development of heterogeneous catalysts, solar light harvesting, and other technologies.
