Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue is presented to celebrate the outstanding career and 70th anniversary of one of the most world-renowned experts in electrochemistry, Professor Doron Aurbach, Head of the Electrochemistry Group in the Department of Chemistry, Bar-Ilan University (Israel). Doron Aurbach is also a Director of the Energy Center at the Bar-Ilan University Institute of Nanotechnology and Advanced Materials, and the leader of the Israel National Research Center for Electrochemical Propulsion, which includes 25 research groups from the seven leading academic institutions in Israel. In 2010-2016, he also served as the Chairperson of the Israel National Labs Accreditation Authority and is a past Chairperson of the Department of Chemistry, Bar-Ilan University (2001-2005). Prof. Aurbach has mentored 70 Ph.D. students, 80 M.Sc. students and has supervised 40 post-doctoral fellows. Doron is the co-author of more than 900 publications and many patents and is one of the most cited scientists (top 1%) in 2018–2021, as published by the Web of Science and Clarivate Analytics.

Prof. Aurbach is behind many of the advances that led to the development of lithium-ion batteries, now considered a solution for the switch from oil to green energy and to limit global warming. The scope of Doron’s research includes all aspects of non-aqueous electrochemistry, many types of batteries such as Li metal, Li-ion, Na-ion, Mg, (Li, Al)-air, Li-sulfur and lead-acid systems, supercapacitors and pseudocapacitors. He pioneered the use of some of the most effective analytical (spectroscopic and microscopic) techniques for operando studies of the most reactive electrochemical systems. In his research, Prof. Aurbach was able to identify major surface reactions which lead to the passivation of active electrodes, which compose rechargeable batteries in the relevant non-aqueous electrolyte solutions. His work promoted and developed important basic scientific topics which formed the basis for the practical development of high-energy-density power sources.

Contributions in this Special Issue will outline recent developments related to the chemistries of lithium-ion and sodium-ion batteries, including cathode and anode materials, organic electrodes, solid-state electrolytes, solid polymers, and solvent-in-salt electrolytes and other chemistries, such as Li-sulfur and Li-air batteries.

We are pleased to invite you to submit a manuscript to this Special Issue; regular articles, communications, and reviews are all welcome.

Prof. Dr. Boris Markovsky

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Nanomanufacturing is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1000 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.
