Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The continuous growth of the human population, and its concomitant energy demand, is pushing the world to the brink of an environmental disaster. Therefore, there is an increasing need for advanced materials in order to generate energy from renewable sources and its storage and improve the conversion from fossil fuels.

Among these materials, oxide-based materials are widely used due their broad range of compositions, structures, and tunability, where the same frameworks with different cations have completely different applications.

This Special Issue will focus on oxide-based materials applied to:

  • Fuel cells;
  • Hydrogen generation and conversion;
  • Hydrogen storage;
  • Solar energy conversion;
  • Batteries;
  • Capacitors

High-quality articles dealing with these topics are welcome.

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.
