Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Efficient, scalable, and reliable energy storage is key to the global energy transition toward renewable energy storage systems. Over the past decade, there has been strong demand for developing high-performance new energy storage technologies, such as advanced battery materials and devices. This Special Issue aims to publish research and present important new discoveries related to synthesis, manufacturing, structure, performance, property, and technology applications, as well as strategies and policies for sustainable energy storage materials and their installations in sustainable energy and development. This Special Issue aims to cover all aspects of advances in energy storage materials and devices. Submissions are welcome to focus on, but are not limited to, the following topics:

  • Li/Na storage materials and beyond Li/Na-ion batteries;
  • Nanomaterials, polymer, inorganic–organic, composite electrode materials;
  • Advanced electrolyte, solid state, high voltage, high temperature, and low temperature;
  • Flexible or stretchable, transparent electrodes and devices;
  • Devices such as Li/Na-ion batteries and beyond, supercapacitors, and fuel cells;
  • Two-dimensional materials such as graphene, Mxene, and beyond;
  • Nano-micro on-chip energy storage devices;
  • Large-scale energy storage systems;
  • Beyond electrochemical, mechanical, chemical, and electric mechanisms-based energy storage materials and devices.

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. Materials 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 2600 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.

Environmental pollution and energy crises have garnered global attention. The substantial discharge of organic waste into water bodies has led to profound environmental contamination. Photocatalytic fuel cells (PFCs) enabling the simultaneous removal of refractory contaminants and recovery of the chemical energy contained in organic pollutants provides a potential strategy to solve environmental issues and the energy crisis. This review will discuss the fundamentals, working principle, and configuration development of PFCs and photocatalytic microbial fuel cells (PMFCs). We particularly focus on the strategies for improving the wastewater treatment performance of PFCs/PMFCs in terms of coupled advanced oxidation processes, the rational design of high-efficiency electrodes, and the strengthening of the mass transfer process. The significant potential of PFCs/PMFCs in various fields is further discussed in detail. This review is intended to provide some guidance for the better implementation and widespread adoption of PFC wastewater treatment technologies. Full article
