DIELECTRIC POLYMERS NANOCOMPOSITES FOR STORAGE ENERGY APPLICATIONS

The capacity to store significant amounts of energy using a straightforward device with a lengthy lifespan renders capacitors an appealing prospect for the future of electric power storage. Nevertheless, their low permittivity has hindered their widespread application, including in electric vehicles and electronic devices. Efforts are underway to enhance ceramic and polymer materials for energy storage; however, the limitations of dielectrics constrain their utility for high-energy storage purposes. Consequently, ceramic composites and polymers have garnered considerable interest due to their enhanced dielectric constant and strength. This paper provides a concise overview of dielectric polymer nanocomposites for energy storage applications, outlining key material properties, discussing commonly used dielectrics, and highlighting improvements offered by polymeric nanocomposites compared to traditional dielectric materials.
