Abstract: Several kinds of organic and inorganic materials, primarily derived from small molecules, were successfully synthesized in this study and systematically investigated in energy-related application: Li-ion battery, Na-ion battery and photocatalysis. The results obtained indicates that the small organic molecule, TCB, is highly promising as a candidate material to be deployed as anode in the lithium battery system. The organic polymer, PTCB, also presents some electrochemical features with relatively low specific capacity and cycling stability. However, PTCB?s performance as a photocatalyst is outstanding. Both the TCB and PTCB, as novel organic materials, would contribute much to energy-related applications. The novel inorganic Sb-carbon composite presents excellent electrochemical performance as the anode material in the sodium-ion battery system. Containing carbon and antimony, this material exhibits large specific capacities. Besides, it displays rather stable performance and high coulombic efficiency under different rates. Thus, this material is highly promising for application in sodium-ion battery.
