Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 August 2020) | Viewed by 6881
Interests: clathrate hydrates; properties of water (bulk, and at nanoscale/biological/polymer surfaces and in heterogeneous environments); properties of ice (crystalline and amorphous); thermal conduction and other thermal properties, especially in water-containing structures; physical and chemical hydrogen storage, including reaction pathways and reversibility considerations; non-equilibrium MD (particularly in continuous or pulsed electric and electromagnetic fields)
Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Hydrogen storage in clathrate hydrates represents both an academically and tecnologically interesting challenge – particularly given the leading prospect of hydrogen as an energy-storage medium, as opposed to storage of electric charge directly. With the advance of the Hydrogen Economy, the need for hydrogen storgae will become even greater, in terms of realising the ambition of true Grid penetration of renewable-energy approaches, so as to mis-match demand and supply. Especially in areas without favourable salt-cavern or geological energy-storage options, manmade (mixed) hydrogen hydrates constitute an important Grid-scalable and economically-feasible approach. This special issue studies the funadamental and applied aspects of realising hydrogen strage in clathrate hydrates, from quantal and classical treatment of the chemical physics of structural and dynamical properties, hydrogen uptake and release, intra-hydrate diffusivity, as well as engineering-inspired manipulation and control of operational hydrate-based hydrogen-storage systems based on microscopic insights.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2300 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.
