Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Hydrogen is being heralded as a future global energy carrier. The National Hydrogen Strategy of Australia has set a target for a clean, innovative, safe, and competitive hydrogen industry, with the aim of becoming a major exporter in the hydrogen industry by 2030. As such, there is increasing interest from major industries in integrating hydrogen technology into their energy portfolio and supply chains. Metal hydrides have received much interest over the last several decades, which is obvious from the previous related Special Issues published in Inorganics: "Functional Materials Based on Metal Hydrides" and "State-of-the-Art and Progress in Metal-Hydrogen Systems". Achieving reversible solid-state hydrogen storage in ambient conditions with moderate energy exchange with the surroundings is the ultimate challenge to becoming a hydrogen-based society. Varieties of novel materials have been investigated in recent decades and have provided many novel compositions, fascinating structures, and functionalities. Today, metal hydrides are being explored for a range of applications from hydrogen exports to remote-area power systems, solid-state battery thermochemical energy storage, and hydrogen diffusion.

The aim of this Special Issue of Inorganics, entitled ‘State-of-the-Art and Progress in Metal-Hydrogen Systems, 2nd Edition’, is to inspire continued research into this important class of materials, particularly for energy-related applications.

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. Inorganics 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.
