Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

One of the most important issues for material scientists is the development of cost-effective and competitive energy conversion and storage systems, resulting in the increasing use of portable electronic devices and electric vehicles. Porous materials can play a pivotal role in providing functional void spaces for these energy related applications. Among others, metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) can be utilized for the generation of conductive media, storage of hydrogen and methane, electrochemical catalytic systems, and catalyst supports for energy relevant devices. Controlled pyrolysis of MOFs can also provide functional oxide-based or carbonaceous porous materials suitable as electrodes for various types of rechargeable batteries and supercapacitors. In this regard, this Special Issue covers all aspects of energy related applications of MOFs and MOF-derived porous materials.

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. 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 2000 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.
