There is great interest in developing multifunctional hybrid nanostructured electrode materials for high performance energy storage devices such as rechargeable Li/Na-ion batteries and Supercapacitors. Novel architectures of hybrid nanomaterials have been shown to improve the device performances. Carbon based nanomaterials, owing to its high surface area and good conductivity properties, have been studied as electrodes for supercapacitors and Li-ion batteries. Graphene/ metal oxides nanohybrids have been recently explored as efficient electrodes for Li-ion battery. Herein, some of our recent results on graphene-based hybrid nanostructures and their application as electrodes for sodium ion batteries will be presented. Results on the fabrication of hybrid sodium-ion capacitor devices based on sodium titanate electrodes will also be discussed and some of the key challenges will be addressed. Further, our recent efforts on the design and synthesis of tailored polyimide based electrodes for organic-based sodium-ion batteries will also be presented.
