Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

During the past several decades, plenty of nanomaterials have been intensively explored, including metal/oxide/nitride/sulfide nanoparticles, nanowires, nanosheets, and various 2D materials (e.g., graphene, MXene, 2D transition metal dichalcogenides). These materials have very high specific areas with abundant active sites for chemical/electrochemical reaction and catalysis, which endow them with great potential for broad applications.

This Special Issue of Nanomaterials focuses on the application of nanomaterials in energy conversion and storage, including oxygen reduction, water oxidation, and various rechargeable batteries; which are crucial for the gradual replacement of fossil fuels with clean energies towards a zero-emission society. In this Special Issue, we invite contributions from researchers and experts on the state-of-the-art advances in this field.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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 2900 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.
