Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Li-ion battery as an electrochemical power source has entered our daily life everywhere from portable cellular phones to automobiles since its appearance in 1991. With increasing demand for energy and power densities, intensive research has been devoted to the development of new battery chemistries and novel electrode and electrolyte materials. Recent research interests have not only covered Li-ion batteries but also extended to the systems beyond Li-ion, such as lithium-air and lithium-sulfur batteries. To address the most recent advances in the research and development of electrochemical power sources, in this special issue we will invite research and review articles on, but not limited to, the following topics:

  • cathode materials
  • anode materials
  • non-aqueous electrolytes (salt, solvent, and additive)
  • polymer electrolytes (solid and gel)
  • ionic liquids
  • solid state electrolytes
  • separators
  • battery performance and safety
  • methods for performance analysis and material characterization
  • new chemistries beyond Li-ion

Submission

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Energies is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1200 CHF (Swiss Francs).
