Special Issue "Novel Nanomaterials for Applications in Energy and Catalysis"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 October 2020.
Interests: nanomaterial synthesis; nanocrystal shape control; nanoparticle self-assembly; nanocatalysis; CO2 electroreduction; electroorganic synthesis; plasmonics
With an increasing worldwide energy demand and a growing need to protect our environment, the development of technologies for green-energy production and storage, renewable fuels, and closing the carbon cycle is of tremendous interest to the research community. Nanomaterials have shown breakthrough performance and potential for these applications due to nanoscale surface morphology and quantum confinement effects enabling their chemical reactivity and selectivity, catalytic behavior, and light-driven properties.
With the nanomaterial prospective for our global energy and sustainability challenges in mind, this Special Issue focuses on nanomaterials and nanocatalysts for energy storage and production, including:
1. (Photo)electrochemical hydrogen production catalysts;
2. Photo- and electrocatalysts for conversion of CO2 into fuels;
3. Nanomaterials for gas-to-liquid and power-to-X conversion technologies;
4. Materials for fuel cells;
5. Materials for photovoltaics;
6. Materials for batteries.
We invite authors to contribute original research and communication articles or comprehensive review articles covering the most recent progress and new developments in the design and utilization of nanomaterials for these photo-, electrochemical, and catalytic processes, which are relevant to applications in renewable energy and sustainability.

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.
