Nitin Choudhary, Chao Li, Julian Moore, Narasimha Nagaiah, Lei Zhai, Yeonwoong Jung and Jayan Thomas
Version of Record online: 28 FEB 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/adma.201605336
Recent developments in asymmetric supercapacitor (ASC) electrode materials (anode and cathode) including carbonaceous materials, metal oxides/nitrides, conductive polymers, and 2D materials are highlighted. A rational electrode material design with tailored nanostructures endows significant improvement in the specific capacitance and energy density of ASCs. The resulting ASCs have the potential to function as a fast charging energy source for next-generation flexible electronics, e-textiles, and transportation applications.

A general method is developed to synthesize highly complex multishelled mixed metal-oxide particles with tunable size and composition from the pyrolysis of a novel class of amorphous coordination polymers. With the structural and compositional advantages, the unique seven-shelled NiCo2O4 particles exhibit remarkable electrochemical performance as an electrode material for hybrid supercapacitors.
- Naphthobischalcogenadiazole Conjugated Polymers: Emerging Materials for Organic Electronics
Itaru Osaka and Kazuo Takimiya
Version of Record online: 27 FEB 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/adma.201605218
π-Conjugated polymers are an important class of materials for organic electronics. This article focuses on the recent advances of emerging π-conjugated polymers incorporating naphthobischalcogenadiazoles such as naphthobisoxadiazole, naphthobisthiadiazole, and naphthobisselenadiazle as strong acceptor building unit. The molecular design, synthesis, electronic properties, ordering structures, and device applications of these polymers are also discussed.
