This chapter describes various processes for electrodeposition of nanomaterials including: 1.Template-free direct electrodeposition of nanoparticles with unique shapes, nanowires, nanotubes, and conducting polymer nanostructures2.Fabrication of various templates for template-assisted electrodeposition, and electrodeposition of nanowires, -rods, -tubes using the templates3.Electrodeposition of nanoparticles, -wires, -wire arrays on highly oriented pyrolytic graphite (HOPGhighly ordered pyrolytic graphite (HOPG))4.Electrodeposition using lithographically patterned methods, such as photolithographic, interference lithographic, electron-beam lithography (EBLelectronbeam lithography (EBL)) methods, and electrochemical lithographic methods. Finally, examples of using the electrodeposited nanomaterials for the lithium-ion batteries (LIBlithium-ion battery (LIB)batterylithium-ions), and pseudocapacitors are presented. This chapter outlines the representative electrochemical strategies in the recent literature for the fabrication of nanostructured materials, such as metals, alloys, polymers, and semiconductors. In view of the fact, the electrodeposited nanomaterials have numerous applications; this chapter will focus on the applications of these nanomaterials for the energy storage and conversions.
