Special Issue "Photo Thermal Conversion and Pool Boiling Heat Transfer of Nanofluid"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 April 2020.
The Guest Editors invite you to submit a Special Issue of Energies on the subject “Photo Thermal Conversion and Pool Boiling Heat Transfer of Nanofluids”. As the importance of renewable energy for replacing fossil fuels has become an issue in the world, the efficient use of energy regarding thermal systems and equipment is required, and thus the use of nanofluids for the increase of efficiency and heat transfer is emphasized. Nanofluids are a major way to improve the poor thermal properties of conventional working fluids such as water, oil, and antifreeze solution. In addition, they can be used in heat energy application fields (especially light–thermal conversion and boiling heat transfer in PTC, CPC, the direct absorption solar heat-collection system, heat pipes, heat exchangers, etc.) because they improve various heat transfer modes such as convection, boiling, and photo-thermal conversion. We therefore invite papers on innovative technical developments, reviews, case studies, analytical papers, as well as assessment papers, from different disciplines, which are relevant to sustainable and renewable energy systems on the applications of nanofluids. The Special Issue will focus on but is not limited to the utilization of light absorption and the boiling heat transfer of various nanofluids.

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. Energies 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 1800 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.
