Abstract Scope Many forms of energy utilization, conversion and storage and generation are dominated by interfacial reactions. Therein nanomaterials as an interfacial modifier will play a critical role in these processes. This talk will provide an overview of their synthesis, integration and value in energy storage, conservation, transfer, efficiency, control and generation. Specific energy applications we have explored include the following: 1) Storage: Increased energy density in Li ion batteries and supercapacitors using carbon nanotubes 2) Efficiency: Reduced friction using nanolubricants between moving parts 3) Transfer: Improved thermal management using nanofluids in heat transfer applications 4) Conservation: Lightweight polymeric composites incorporating nanotubes, nanoclays and graphene oxide for vehicle composites 5) Control: Gas sensors based on nanoscale metal oxide semi-conductors for process control and monitoring 6) Generation: Catalysts and photocatalysts using nanostructured oxides for accelerated charge transfer and minimal recombination losses Highlights in each application will be presented.
