In today’s developing and challenging environment, the need of quality material for fulfilling the requirements of various sectors is increasing. Hence, to satisfy this task there is a growing need for advanced materials. Advanced material is a material that either synthesises or modifies the existing material by using various advanced technologies to get improved properties such as physical, chemical, mechanical, and optical properties and that gives better performance than the conventional material. There are various advanced materials including polymeric materials (polystyrene, dendrimer, etc.), metal oxide (TiO2, ZnO, etc.), biomaterial (dextran, cellulose, gelatine, pollulan, etc.), and nanomaterial (CNT, GO, etc.). Owing to their excellent mechanical, physical, electrical, chemical, and optical properties, ability to make composite with other materials, ease of availability, and low toxicity, they are used in various applications such as energy storage, water treatment (heavy metal, dyes, and pollutant removal), solar cell, electronics, paint, and textile industries.
