Electrospinning has emerged as a versatile technique to prepare nanofibers with controlled structures and multifunctional assemblies. A large variety of 1D materials with tunable properties can be prepared, also providing the possibility of scaling-up and mass production. Due to their great variety in composition, geometries and architectures, electrospun materials have found a wide range of applications. In recent years, in the context of escalating energy requirements and increasing world population, efficient energy conversion and storage devices are required, and electrospinning is a promising tool to help meet this challenge.
We would like to invite you to contribute to a Special Issue of Nanomaterials on the application of electrospun nanomaterials for energy conversion and storage. Corresponding subjects include, but are not limited to, fuel cells, hydrogen production/storage, batteries, solar cells, and supercapacitors.
This issue will include full papers, communications, reviews, and mini-reviews.Dr. Sara Cavaliere

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.
