Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The sustainable provision of mankind with renewable energy is one of the most pressing problems we face at the moment. The most likely scenario for a future energy supply will consist of a mixture of renewable energy sources in combination with advanced storage technologies. Nanomaterials became key elements of many modern approaches to energy conversion and storage—for example, platinum nanoparticles are being used in commercial fuel cells

The scope of this special issue covers all areas where nanomaterials are being used in this field. Examples include, but are not limited to, photovoltaic cells (e.g. bulk heterojunction nanocomposites), artificial photosynthesis, fuel cells, thermo-electric devices, batteries, super-capacitors, and others. High-quality manuscripts will be accepted from all areas of energy conversion and storage provided nanomaterials are a key element of the research.

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. Nanomaterials is an international peer-reviewed Open Access quarterly 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 300 CHF (Swiss Francs). English correction and/or formatting fees of 250 CHF (Swiss Francs) will be charged in certain cases for those articles accepted for publication that require extensive additional formatting and/or English corrections.
