Special Issue "Application of Nanomaterials in Ion Batteries"
A special issue of Nanomaterials (ISSN 2079-4991).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (17 June 2019).
Interests: Electrode materials synthesis and characterizations; Li ion; Na-Ion; K-ion; Li-S battery systems; Battery thermal safety; Electrolytes and additives
Nanosized (1–100 nm) materials possesses distinct physical, chemical and electrochemical properties that could impact the cell performance of rechargeable ion-batteries. In energy storing Li-ion, Na-ion and K-ion batteries the anode and cathode materials dimensions, shape, structure and texture could play a significant role in charging and discharging time, ion-diffusion, electronic conductivity and solid electrolyte formation (typically for anodes). The designed electrode materials play a momentous role in a battery’s cycle life, energy density, cost and safety aspects. This Special Issue of the Nanomaterials journal will cover and shine light on the applications of various fascinating nanomaterials and nanoarchitectures of metals, alloys, oxides, MXenes, heteroatom doped materials and many more as electrodes for ion batteries (single to multivalent) and their overall promising energy storing performance.

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. Nanomaterials is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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.
