The exploration of new-family desalination techniques has become increasingly important in recent decades. Capacitive deionization (CDI) has attracted multidisciplinary interest as a promising alternative to the conventional desalination techniques of reverse osmosis and electro-osmosis, due to several attractive features such as low energy consumption, environmental friendliness, and high water utilization efficiency. CDI desalts saline water through storing ions in electrical double layers of porous carbons or by redox reactions with faradic materials.

This is the first book to specialise in CDI and aims to showcase the fundamentals and progressive achievements of the research. Chapters cover the timeline of CDI technologies, the expansion of new-family electrode materials, exploitation of new-concept CDI devices, and applications of CDI in other new areas. In addition, the book provides new insights into future directions for the development of CDI and other emerging nanotechnologies for addressing the energy-water nexus.

Edited by a founder of the field, the book will be of interest to those researching water desalination and purification across chemistry, materials science and environmental science.

Xingtao Xu received his Bachelor degree from Shandong University in 2012, and then obtained Ph.D. degree (2017) under supervision by Professor Likun Pan from East China Normal University. From 2016 to 2017, he joined the Professor Yusuke Yamauchi Group in NIMS, Japan, as an exchange Ph.D. student. In 2018, he started his independent research at Hohai University. From November 2019, he served as NIMS Postdoctoral Researcher in Professor Yusuke Yamauchi Group of NIMS. Up to date, he has published over 60 papers with more than 2300 citations (h-index=29). His research focuses on the synthesis, characterization and application of nanoarchitectured materials for energy-related and environmental applications. Likun Pan received his Bachelor, Master and PhD degree from Fudan University (1997), Institute of Acoustics, Chinese Academy of Sciences (2001), and Nanyang Technological University (2005), respectively. Now he works as a Professor at School of Physics and Electronic Science, East China Normal University with current research on functional materials for energy and environment applications. He has published more than 280 papers indexed by SCI, including more than 20 ESI highly cited papers in past years. These papers were cited for more than 12000 times and his h-index is 60. Now he is advisory/editorial board members of several SCI-cited journals.
