Special Issue "Selected papers from Thematic Meeting “Materials for Energy”"
A special issue of Challenges (ISSN 2078-1547).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 January 2017).
This Special Issue is open to the submission of paper presented at the thematic meeting, “Materials for Energy”, in Rome, Italy, on 9 September, 2016. The meeting will be held at the Physics Department of Sapienza University, and is promoted by the Institute of Complex System of the Italian National Research Council (www.isc.cnr.it). As is widely accepted, the storage and transformation of energy is one of the priorities for the future. The meeting intends to present the state-of-the-art and future perspectives and challenges concerning materials for the storage and transformation of energy. In particular, we will focus on materials for hydrogen storage, purification, and its production from graphene, ionic liquids, materials for lithium batteries, PEM and solid oxide fuel cells, electrolyzers, and magnetocaloric and piezoeletric compounds.
