Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Energy storage plays an important role in addressing the growing demand for sustainable and efficient energy systems. Electrochemical energy storage devices, such as batteries, supercapacitors, and fuel cells, have garnered significant attention due to their potential to store and deliver energy with high efficiency and reliability. The materials used for electrodes play a vital role in the performance of these devices. They determine important factors such as energy density, power density, and cycle life. Over the years, intensive research efforts have been directed towards advancing electrode materials and modifying them to enhance their energy storage performance. These advancements encompass a broad spectrum of strategies, including the development of novel materials with tailored properties, surface treatment/ modifications to improve their electrochemical kinetics, and the exploration of nanostructured architectures to optimize ion transport and charge storage mechanisms. Through novel designs and engineering at the electrode level, researchers have attempted to open up new pathways for next-generation energy storage technologies with improved performance, durability, and sustainability.

This Special Issue on “Advances in Electrode Materials for Energy Storage Applications” aims to present cutting-edge research in this field; thus, we seek high-quality pieces of work focusing on the latest advances being made to various electrode materials and their applications, as well as studies which aim to identify future priorities and directions, including the use of nanoparticles, nanoporous materials, nanocatalysts, nanocomposites within supercapacitor and batteries technologies. We cordially extend an invitation to submit your valuable and original articles or reviews to this Special Issue. Research areas may include, but are not limited to:

  • The Synthesis and characterization of novel nanostructured electrode materials;
  • The design and fabrication of hierarchical electrode architectures and nanocomposites;
  • The development of environmentally friendly electrode materials and manufacturing processes;
  • Surface engineering technology (e.g., surface coatings, functionalization, doping);
  • Energy storage mechanisms;
  • Ionic liquid and solid-state electrolytes studies;
  • Flexible and wearable energy storage;
  • The improvement of commercialized electrode materials.
