Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Over the past few decades, there have been increasing demands globally for high-efficiency energy storage devices to power various electronics including cellular phones, laptop computers, and digital cameras. The demands are recently rapidly growing due to emerging applications of energy storage in the new generation of electric vehicles, hybrid electric vehicles, smart grids, and electrical energy storage from wind and solar power.

Nanomaterials and nanotechnology have been extensively studied for realizing high-efficiency and next-generation energy storage devices. The high surface-to-volume ratio and short diffusion pathways of nano-sized materials can achieve large power density as well as energy density. Their various synthesis and functionalization methods enable mass production of energy storage devices.

In this Special Issue of Nanomaterials, we present the recent advancements in nanomaterials and nanotechnology for energy storage devices including, but not limited to, batteries, Li-ion batteries, Li-sulfur batteries, electric double-layer capacitors, hybrid capacitors, and fuel cells.

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.
