Abstract: Some aspects of electrochemical synthesis, characterisation and applications of nanostructured carbons and Ti(IV) oxides are discussed. These themes have attracted considerable attention from addressing purely academic questions up to promising applications in energy storage and conversion.

Keywords: carbon nanostructures; titanium oxide; electrochemistry; spectroelectrochemistry; solar cells; Li-ion batteries; nanotechnology; nanomaterials; electrochemical synthesis; characterisation; energy conversion; energy storage.
