Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) is considered to play a significant role in future energy systems for various applications. However, significant research is needed for manufacturing cost reduction and performance improvement.
Multi-physics and -phase transport processes of reactants/products, heat, and charges are strongly coupled with various reactions, which are inter-linked and determine SOFC electrode design, structure/ configuration selection, and cell operation. This special issue will highlight current research activities and development. The issue will focus on understanding and analyzing transport phenomena that are coupled with chemical reactions. One of this issue’s major objectives is to provide state-of-art information on both experimental and theoretic analysis methods and progress. Relevant topics include catalytic reactions in three-phase boundaries and transport processes, as well as their couplings in SOFCs.

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).
