Li-ion battery and behind systems provide obvious advantages of high energy, power density, and light weight. Thus, they have become promising technological choices for consumer electronic devices, portable power tools, and electric vehicles. Nanostructured materials possess improved electronic, thermal, and mechanical properties. These properties are enabled by virtue of these materials' nanosized dimensions, which significantly increase the electrochemical performances of Li-ion batteries and of behind systems. The current fundamental development and understanding of nanostructured materials demonstrate broad and excellent applications in Li-ion batteries and behind.
This Special Issue is aimed at providing significant contributions on advances in the synthesis, optimization, and characterization of nanostructured materials, with an emphasis on nanomaterials being applied for building high performance Li-ion batteries and behind systems. The nanostructured materials include, but are not limited to, nano-carbon (carbon nanotubes, graphene), metallic materials, metal oxides, polymer nanoparticles, thin films, nano-membranes, and their composites, with a special emphasis on their potential uses for Li-ion batteries and behind.

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.
