Special Issue "Sustainable Hydrogen Storage Materials"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2020.
Interests: Development of novel multifunctional materials and nanostructures for energy storage and nanoscale fabrication
Hydrogen is an attractive option for the much needed decarbonization of global energy systems, and recent improvements in the cost and performance of hydrogen-powered fuel cells point towards long-term economic viability. However, the development of robust and safe technologies for hydrogen storage remains a significant challenge with important societal and environmental sustainability implications. Whereas compressed hydrogen gas technology offers a short-term solution, future demands in cost, energy density, and system efficiency require alternative approaches. Materials-based hydrogen storage offers a wide range of possibilities to meet the technical requirements for both stationary and mobile applications, but new breakthroughs in materials performance are required.
This Special Issue on Sustainable Hydrogen Storage Materials will focus on the newest developments in the synthesis, modeling, and characterization of sorbents, metal hydrides, and hydrogen carriers. Submission of papers that focus on elucidating the fundamental factors that control hydrogen binding energy, reaction pathways, and the role of additives and nanostructures on hydrogen storage properties are especially encouraged.

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.
