Special Issue "Electrochemical Properties of Carbon Nanomaterials"
A special issue of Nanomaterials (ISSN 2079-4991).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2020.
Interests: carbon; nanomaterials; electronic structure; electrochemistry
Carbon materials are traditionally used in electrochemical devices for energy conversion and storage. Activated carbons possessing highly specific surface areas are applied as electrodes in electrochemical capacitors and for supporting active species in electrocatalysis. Graphite is used as an anode material in commercial, rechargeable lithium-ion batteries. The development of nanostructured carbon forms, such as nanodiamonds, carbon nanotubes, and graphene, has led to the chemical design of carbon-based nanomaterials with exceptional electrochemical characteristics. In recent years, tremendous effort has been made to find methods to produce carbon nanomaterials with desired morphology, texture, and surface composition characteristics and to establish important relationships between these parameters and the electrochemical performance of a specific device.
The aim of this Special Issue of Nanomaterials is to discuss the use of nanostructured sp2-hybridized carbon nanomaterials for electrochemical capacitors. Owing to their high power density, short charging time, and long-term working stability, these devices are becoming important for various applications. We invite researchers to submit their original results on relevant topics, such as structure tailoring, surface activation, and the capacitive behavior of carbon in different electrolytes.

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 2000 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.
