Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Among renewable energy, hydrogen productions, solar energy, and irregular mechanical energy-induced chemical energy and electricity have been attracted to the application of portable devices and backup power systems.

Based on advanced nanomaterials, this Special Issue focuses on diverse energy harvesters, such as hydrogen evolution reaction, piezoelectric and triboelectric nanogenerators, piezocatalysis, photocatalysis, light conversion and harverting, next-generation solar devices and surface modifications of materials. We are pleased to invite you to submit your original research articles or comprehensive reviews on these topics, but not limited to the topics mentioned above.

In this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome. Research areas may include (but not be limited to) the following:

  • Photoelectric catalysis;
  • Hydrogen evolution reaction;
  • Piezoelectric nanogenerator;
  • Triboelectric nanogenerator;
  • Piezocatalysis;
  • Novel mechanism of catalysis;
  • Light harvesting and conversion;
  • Photovoltaics and energy harvesting devices.

We look forward to receiving your contributions.

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. Nanomaterials 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 2600 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.
