Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

I would like to invite you to submit your contributions to this Special Issue of Energies on the subject area of “Recent Progress in Metal-Organic Frameworks for Energy-Related Applications”. Metal-organic frameworks (MOF) a family of porous materials marks among the top inventions in material science. The reticular synthesis approach has allowed designing MOFs with desire structure, composition and properties. Over the last two decades, significant milestones and breakthrough have been achieved in developing MOFs based applications.  MOFs hold potential in a wide range of applications such as for gas storage, molecular separation, catalysis, drug delivery, sensing biomedical imaging and ion exchange.

Among the emerging applications of the MOFs are energy-related such as fuel cell, batteries, solar cells, CO2 to fuel, photo-induced hydrogen evolution, lighting and supercapacitors.

This energies special issue aims at providing a comprehensive guide on the development of MOFs for energy-related applications with special focus on the following aspects:

Keywords

  • Hydrogen and methane storage at MOF
  • MOFs for heat pump applications
  • MOFs for Natural and Bio Gas processing
  • MOF conductors
  • MOF supercapacitors
  • MOFs for battery
  • MOFs for Solar cell
  • MOFs for Fuel cell
  • MOFs for lightening
  • MOFs for electrochemical energy storage and conversion
  • MOFs for CO2 to fuel conversion 

Thank you very much!

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.
