A comprehensive review published on Organic Polyimides (PI) for energy storage applications in Angewandte Chemie by Dr. Amey Nimkar and Dr. Netanel Shpigel. This review deals with PI chemistry for their synthesis protocols, intriguing electrochemistry, and active role in non-active components like binders, separators as well as current collectors. The review also deals with recently developed energetic materials like PI based MOF and COF. It will stimulate to use PI materials in energy storage applications for further large-scale energy storage applications. Read more at
