Recently, advanced materials have attracted considerable interest owing to their possible applications in different fields such as in supercapacitors, capacitors, batteries and other energy storage systems. Many of the 21st century’s advancing technologies, e.g., electric vehicles (and hybrids), portable electronic devices, and renewable energy systems, drive the demand for high-performance energy storage systems. In fact, the increasing demand for processable, lightweight, flexible energy storage materials has motivated researchers from both academia and industry to develop and manufacture new materials that offer excellent properties depending on the targeted applications. This Special Issue is aimed at presenting the current state-of-the-art in new advanced materials to address the various challenging issues researchers have been confronted with in this field for a number of applications, especially for energy storage.
This Special Issue of Nanomaterials will publish high quality short communications, and research papers covering the most recent advances, as well as comprehensive reviews addressing novel and state-of-the-art topics from active researchers in innovative advanced materials and hybrid materials, concerning not only their synthesis, preparation and characterization, but especially focusing on the applications of such materials with outstanding performances.

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 1600 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.
