Abstract


  • Energy storage is a key requirement for the emerging wearable technologies. Recent

    progress in this direction includes the development of fiber based batteries and

    capacitors and even some examples of such fibers incorporated into prototype textiles.

    Herein we discuss the advantages of using the wet-spinning process to create

    nanostructured carbon basedmaterials as wearable energy storage. The ability to control

    the physical, mechanical, electrical, and electrochemical properties of carbon nanotube

    based fibers holds great promise to develop smart polymeric structure as an energy

    storing materials including fibers and textiles. This is the first comprehensive review to

    discuss effect of nanostructured energy materials on the electrochemical properties of

    carbon nanotube based fibers which covers the various compositions, spinning and

    fabrication conditions on the performance of wearable energy storage.
