Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This is our pleasure to announce a Special Issue of Nanomaterials on ‘Polymeric Nanocomposites for Energy Relevant Technologies’. As polymer stands is in a pivotal position in the materials science landscape, there are extensive research activities across the globe utilizing polymer as a major component of energy research. Polymers are everywhere in energy relevant technologies ranging from using polymer as template for nanostructured electrodes, separators, binding agent, electrolytes, functional polymer as redox component, even for energy device packaging, EMI shielding applications, semiconducting polymers, water treatment via electrochemical routes, and many more. To cover all these aspects related to exploring polymers in energy-relevant applications, we cordially invite you to contribute to this Special Issue. We believe that our Special Issue will attract huge attention with all of your excellent 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 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.

Nanostructured TiO2 and PEDOT Electrodes with Photovoltaic Application
Nanomaterials 2021, 11(1), 107; https://doi.org/10.3390/nano11010107 - 04 Jan 2021
Abstract
In this work, nanostructured TiO2 and poly-3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene (PEDOT) layers were electrochemically prepared over transparent electrodes. Morphological characterization evidenced the presence of nanostructures as planed with 50-nm-wide TiO2 rod formations followed by 30-nm-wide PEDOT wires. Different characterizations were made to the deposits, [...] Read more.
In this work, nanostructured TiO2 and poly-3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene (PEDOT) layers were electrochemically prepared over transparent electrodes. Morphological characterization evidenced the presence of nanostructures as planed with 50-nm-wide TiO2 rod formations followed by 30-nm-wide PEDOT wires. Different characterizations were made to the deposits, establishing their composition and optic properties of the deposits. Finally, photovoltaic cells were prepared using this modified electrode, proving that the presence of PEDOT nanowires in the cell achieves almost double the efficiency of its bulk analogue.
