Abstract

Two-dimensional boron nitride is widely in the trend of the advance of energy conversion and storage. The energy sector has particularly thrived rapidly for its versatility harnessing various applications of the developments in new technologies. Paying more attention to two-dimensional boron nitride extended mechanical strength and flexibility, this material is preferably selected for flexible solar cells development, which in turn makes it possible to build lightweight and portable energy solutions. Energy storage applications, in which two-dimensional boron nitride is set in the supercapacitor and battery, are interesting structural candidates. Because of huge surface area it is capable of hosting guest ions, it has potential to be used as the electrode material, accelerating the cycling and rate for energy storage devices. In addition, its chemical stability has a positive effect on the longevity of the battery and supercapacitors because it reduces the oxidation or the encrustation of the electrode and therefore ensures a longer life cycle. Furthermore, two-dimensional boron nitride membranes are promising candidates for electrochemical synthesis of fuels and electrolyzes with their outstanding ion selectivity and permeability.  This article detail about two-dimensional boron nitride as it a multifunctional material for enhancing conversion and energy storing technologies that makes it an outstanding material in that area, and this will lead to more efficiency, durability, and environmentally friendly energy solutions in the future.
