The 7th Conference on Carbon Materials for Energy Storage and Environmental Protection (CESEP2017) will be held in Lyon, France, 23–26 October, 2017. The Conference is devoted to the synthesis, functionalization and application of new types of carbon and graphite forms, such as graphene, fullerenes, carbon nanotubes, nanofibers and composites. Such materials have already found many applications in environmental protection, water purification and remediation, gas separation and storage, solar energy conversion and use, green chemistry process, the power industry, electronics, biotechnologies and medicine, e.g., as adsorbents, sensors, catalyst supports, electrodes in energy sources (supercapacitors, batteries, fuel cells), heat storage devices, implants, etc. CESEP’17 conference emphasis is, not only placed on fundamental research, but also on new areas of application.
This Special Issue selects papers from the CESEP2017 conference and covers a very broad scope, from synthesis and functionalization of different forms of carbon materials (graphenes, nanotubes, nanoporous, graphite) to their applications in water purification, gas separation and storage, energy storage and conversion, electronics, biotechnologies, etc.
We invite authors to contribute original research articles, communications, as well as review articles, to this Special Issue.

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. C 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) is waived for well-prepared manuscripts submitted to this issue. 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.
