During the last decade, the scarcity of fossil fuels and the increase of pollution have stimulated worldwide research on energy conversion and storage, particularly focused on carbon science. Carbon Materials for Electrochemical Energy Storage Systems compares and contrasts the major applications of carbons for energy storage, including electrodes for lithium batteries, electrodes for supercapacitors, components of fuel cells, electrochemical hydrogen storage, and other advanced battery applications of carbons. The text provides background material on electrochemistry and the properties of carbon that affect electrochemical behavior. It includes examples of industrial carbon-based systems.
