Special Issue "Materials for Electrochemical Capacitors and Batteries"
A special issue of Materials (ISSN 1996-1944).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 February 2017)
The limited fossil fuels and the serious environmental problems have sparked unprecedented research effort in developing novel energy storage technologies from sustainable and renewable energy resources in recent years. Electrochemical capacitors (also called supercapacitors) and secondary batteries are the most attractive electrochemical energy storage systems that may find widespread applications ranging from consumer electronics, electric vehicles to large-scale smart utility grids. However, the-state-of-the art power sources cannot meet the ever-increasing demands for high energy density, high power density and long cycle life. It is therefore important to explore high-performance energy storage systems by developing novel electrode/electrolyte materials, increasing electrochemical utilization of active materials, and constructing devices based on new chemistry/configuration. To this end, this Special Issue aims to address current and future advancements in all aspects of materials science and engineering and their applications for supercapacitors and batteries. We cordially invite original research and review articles on a wide range of topics that include nanomaterials, nanotechnology and mechanisms for supercapacitors, Li-ion batteries, Li-sulfur batteries, Na-ion batteries, etc.

Manuscript Submission Information
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. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short 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 thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Materials 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 1500 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
