Energy and environment are two interrelated global challenges. Energy resources are depleting while air pollution and greenhouse emissions are deteriorating our only habitat, the planet Earth. New materials are critical to winning the final battle for sustainable living environments and against climate change. Thanks to countless renowned researchers and engineers all over the world, like you, technologies advance every day. New knowledge has to be synthesized and shared with the international community in a timely and regular way. Therefore, through this Special Issue, I am seeking your original, unpublished works that describe recent advances in micro/nano materials in relation to clean energy and the environment. I extend my warm invitation for research papers from a broad range of topics related to micro/nanostructured materials aiming at future energy resources, low emission energy conversion, energy storage, energy efficiency, air emission control, air monitoring, air cleaning, and many other related applications. High quality manuscripts will be published in the Special Issue after rigorous peer-review. Our team will work hard towards the rapid and wide dissemination of your valuable research results, recent developments, and novel applications in the area of the materials, energy and environment.
This Special Issue is dedicated to the first anniversary of the Tsinghua University–University of Waterloo Joint Research Center for Micro/Nano Energy and Environment Technology. (https://uwaterloo.ca/jcmeet). Full papers, communications, and reviews are all welcome. I look forward to receiving your work.
