Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

With the surge in global energy consumption, the imperative for clean energy solutions has become increasingly urgent. Advanced energy storage technologies have emerged as pivotal tools for enabling large-scale energy storage, offering a pathway towards sustainable energy practices. In recent years, wide attention has gravitated towards batteries featuring halogen, chalcogen, air, and so on, as positive electrodes. These batteries exhibit rapid reaction kinetics and prolonged lifespan, positioning them as promising contenders for large-scale energy storage applications, thereby prompting investment in this field. Moreover, addressing challenges associated with cathode materials undergoing redox reactions necessitates the development of innovative catalysts. Enhancing battery capacity and cycle stability through catalyst design is deemed crucial in this regard.

To foster advancements in this critical area, this Special Issue entitled “Powering the Future: Advances of Catalysis in Batteries” has been introduced. This initiative invites researchers to contribute reviews or research papers that focus on catalyst design or catalysis mechanisms within batteries, aiming to expedite progress towards efficient and sustainable energy storage solutions.

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. Catalysts 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 2700 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.
