    Functional nanostructured polymers for energy storage and environmental technologies

    This talk will present a novel class of polymeric materials we developed recently: nanostructured conductive polymer hydrogels (CPHs) that are hierarchically porous, and structurally tunable in size, shape, porosity and chemical interfaces. Given advantageous features such as intrinsic 3D nanostructured conducting framework, excellent electronic and electrochemical properties, and scalable processability, they have been demonstrated useful for a number of applications in energy, bioelectronics, and environmental technologies. Several examples on developing high-performance energy storage devices and multifunctional superhydrophobic coatings for environmental cleanup will be discussed to illustrate "structure-derived functions" of this special class of materials.
