Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

With this Special Issue, we aim to collect recent research studies developed in the Spanish Scientific Community, related with new nanomaterials applied to energy storage/conversion and/or as catalytic materials. Although Spain is a country with a not remarkably high population and with moderate technological–industrial potential, the scientific production capacity of its researchers on the subject of this Special Issue is remarkable. Research topics included in this call include but are not limited to the following:

  • Design, preparation, and characterization of nanomaterials for batteries, supercapacitors, fuel cells, solar cells, catalysts, photocatalysts, and sensors;
  • Structure and morphology of nanomaterials in relationship with their performance and with reaction mechanisms;
  • Applications in energy storage, energy conversion, hydrogen production, synthesis of chemicals, treatment of environmental waste materials, detecting toxic or hazardous materials, etc.

All research studies in the above categories are suitable for submission for this Special Issue if they have been mainly carried out in Spain or by Spanish researchers. Any international collaborative research with Spanish researchers is also welcome.

Another aim of this Special Issue, apart from introducing state-of-the-art research on the topic “Nanomaterials for Energy Storage/Conversion and Catalysis in Spain”, will be to promote collaborative investigations between Spanish and international researchers in this area whose development can definitively contribute to achieve the desired sustainability of our societies during the 21st century.

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. 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 2200 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.
