Special Issue "Functional Materials for Energy Conversion and Storage"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 28 February 2021.
Interests: design, fabrication, and characterisation of functional materials for advanced manufacturing applications
The world’s ever growing demand for energy, as well as environmental concerns arising from traditional fossil fuel sources, have inspired intensive research to develop clean and sustainable energy sources, as well as saving and utilizing energy as efficiently as possible. The science of functional materials, where physics meets chemistry, has attracted a great deal of attention because of its versatile techniques to achieve these goals.
This Issue will focus on functional materials with specific electrical, thermal, magnetic, chemical, or electrochemical properties as a foundation for designing and fabricating new, desired materials enabling high performance energy storage and conversion 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 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.
