Abstract:Significant advances in development of strategies and approaches on novel materials design and processing have been made. Here we particularly highlight the advantages of combination of multi-functionalities to achieve synergetic effect on energy materials performance towards applications. These include combination of carbon coating with band engineering for alteration of electronic properties; universal general approach for morphology control; combination of physical confinement with catalytic effect to control polysulphide loss in metal sulphur battery; Multiple strain engineering for increase of reactive sites in catalysts; Additive & subtractive engineering for controlled growth of nanomaterials with designed size, shape and composition; Multiple dimension manipulation to achieve optimised electronic and ionic properties; Hybridisation at materials, structure & device level to achieve high reactivity in energy storage materials. Among these the interface/surface science and engineering is the most critical element for energy materials design and processing at both fundamental and applied level. Most of the research is limited within the block of research inputs to research outputs while there is a huge gap between research outputs and commercial benefits which need to be addressed. Scaling-up remains as a great challenge to facilitate industry transformation processes from laboratory to real world applications. The design and construction of battery pack driven minning veicles through development of advanced battery management system by UOW team sets unique example for transfering lab success to industry applications.
