Local Isomeric Polar Nanoclusters Enabled Superior Capacitive Energy Storage Under Moderate Fields in NaNbO3-Based Lead-Free Ceramics

  •  30 May 2024

Graphical Abstract

Description unavailable

A unique superparaelectric state filled with isomeric polar nanoclusters is realized for lead-free relaxor ferroelectric capacitors by a composition-design strategy that uses NaNbO3, BaTiO3, and BiFeO3 with high spontaneous polarization and different ferroelectric symmetries to form solid solutions, contributing to superior comprehensive energy storage properties achieved at moderate electric fields.

Alkaline‐Responsive, Self‐Healable, and Conductive Copolymer Composites with Enhanced Mechanical Properties Tailored for Wearable Tech

  •  30 May 2024

Graphical Abstract

Description unavailable

The research introduces a self-healable and conductive copolymer, poly(ionic liquid-co-acrylic acid) (PIL-co-PAA), synthesized through free radical polymerization, and further optimized by incorporating thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU). This combination leverages the unique properties of each component, especially ion-dipole interactions and hydrogen bonds, resulting in a material that exhibits exceptional self-healing abilities and demonstrates enhanced mechanical properties and electrical conductivity.
