Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In recent years, the field of flexible electronics has attracted the attention of many researchers since it is one of the most promising areas for diverse scientific and industrial developments, such as electronic skin, wearables devices, and biosensing. Therefore, there are broad research lines developing that are focused on the synthesis of flexible materials as an alternative to conventional technologies aiming to satisfy the requirements for this kind of application (flexibility, lightness, transparency, etc.). These efforts have led to outstanding advances in many flexible electronics areas, including sensors or antennas. However, progress in flexible electronics also requires the development of flexible, environmentally friendly and cost-effective energy storage devices that, combined with energy harvesting technologies, contribute to the development of self-powered devices.

In this context, polymer-based materials are expected to play a key role in the development of a new generation of cheap, lightweight, and flexible energy storage devices for IoT applications. For that, this Special Issue, “Energy Storage Devices for Flexible Electronics”, covers the study and synthesis of polymer-based materials as well as their combination with other materials, such as carbon (grapheme, MOFs, and MXenes)-based materials, to be used in energy storage devices that can contribute to the further development of cost-effective flexible electronics instruments.

Original papers, communications, and reviews covering the use of polymers for this kind of applications are warmly welcomed in this Special Issue.

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. Polymers is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2400 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.
