Special Issue "Inorganic Clathrate Materials"
A special issue of Materials (ISSN 1996-1944).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 June 2016).
Interests: solid state physics; materials synthesis; materials chemistry; thermoelectric materials and technology
Interests: preparation; crystal structure; chemical bonding; chemical and physical behavior of intermetallic compounds
In the past decade, inorganic clathrates have received rapidly increasing attention globally due to their unusual and potentially useful electronic, thermal, as well as chemical properties. The diverse behaviors they display are often directly related to the atomic interactions in these unique inclusion-type compounds, as well as their expanded framework structures. As prospects grow for utilizing these materials in energy harvesting, energy conversion, and energy storage applications, the compositional diversity they afford provides a broad materials space for further scientific and technological discovery.
This Special Issue aims to provide a forum for contributions focused on all aspects of inorganic clathrates, both scientific and technological, including new experimental and theoretical research that advances the understanding of the synthesis, structure, physical, and chemical properties, as well as applications of these 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.
