On the basis of its unique structure and excellent properties, graphene is considered to have the potential to be able to contribute to the construction of a sustainable energy generation system, in which renewable energies can be used. Energy can be effectively converted to applicable forms (electricity or fuel) from infinite sources, especially from solar power and water. Aiming at this goal, a variety of graphene-based materials has emerged as one of the fascinating alternative electrode materials for application in fuel cells, regenerative fuel cells and solar cells. Nonetheless, the research towards advanced graphene materials for energy conversion applications is still at an early stage. A number of challenges remain to be explored.
This Special Issue aims to address current and future advancements in all aspects of the graphene-based catalysts and materials for fuel cells and solar cells applications, including novel synthetical strategies and device fabrication processes, and the study of their structure, electronic and physical properties.

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. 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 1600 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.
