    Plug in vehicles and many other electronic devices are limited by the performance of secondary batteries. In addition, the battery should also be safe. This presentation will feature nanocomposite materials that improve performance or reduce the risk of failure or fire. Titania and other nanocomposites will be discussed for their structural stability, long cycling life, low cost, wide availability, decent charging/discharging capacity and environmental benignity. Latest results on fabrication and electrochemical performance of nanofibers synthesized via electrospinning will be presented. Fibers with diameters well below 200 nm can be achieved. The impact of calcination condition on material structure and activity are reported.
