Special Issue "Nanomaterials for Electrochemical Energy Storage and Conversion Systems"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 10 May 2021.
Interests: energy storage and conversion; rechargeable batteries; electrocatalysts; in situ analysis; nanomaterials; fuel cells; water electrolysis; energy transport
Electrochemical energy storage and conversion systems, including rechargeable batteries, fuel cells, and water electrolysis, have been attracting increasing attention as keys for a clean energy future. There have been tremendous efforts to further develop the overall performance (lifetime, rate capability, energy density, etc.) of electrochemical electrodes, and nanomaterials are of particular interest. This is because the decrease in dimension or size of materials allows the tuning of their fundamental properties, e.g., phase transformation thermodynamics, energy transfer kinetics, surface-to-volume ratio, electronic structures, and ionic transport resistance. Thus, it is highly important for researchers to develop novel nanomaterial fabrication technology and further apply it to electrochemical devices for performance enhancement.
This Special Issue of Nanomaterials will attempt to cover the recent advancements in the field of nanostructured electrodes for electrochemical systems, including (but not limited to) lithium-ion batteries, next-generation rechargeable batteries, water electrolysis, fuel cells, electrochemical sensors, photoelectrochemical systems, and supercapacitors.

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.
