Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues

In the last two decades, carbon has transcended beyond its traditional allotropes, graphite and diamond, into a variety of novel forms, distinguished by the unique combinations of their atomic bonding (SP2 or SP3), nanosized structural features (such as pore size, surface features), dimensional confinements (0–3 D), and degree of crystallinities (amorphous to crystalline). These new forms exhibit interesting mechanical, chemical, electronic, and optical properties and have proven their potential in a wide range of applications.

The Special Issue focuses on the electrochemical properties of these novel carbon materials and explores their applications in chemical sensing, biosensing, and energy storage; the three areas where their unique electrochemical properties have found a direct relevance.

In this regard, the Special Issue is inviting work on electrochemical sensing and energy storage applications of all forms of low-dimensional and nanostructured carbon materials, such as carbon nanotubes, graphenes, fullerenes, carbon onions, carbon dots, mesoporous carbons, and diamond nanocrystals, as well as their derivatives. Along with original and unpublished research work, comprehensive reviews covering relevant areas are also welcome. 

Feel free to email me or contact the journal with any questions. Thank you for your consideration in sharing your important work in this Special Issue of the Molecules Journal!

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Solids is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1000 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.

Global increasing demand in the need of energy leads to the development of non-conventional, high power energy sources. Supercapacitors (SCs) are one of the typical non-conventional energy storage devices which are based on the principle of electrochemical energy conversion. SCs are promising energy storage devices for better future energy technology. Increasing progress has been made in the development of applied and fundamental aspects of SCs. Manganese oxide electrode materials have been well studied; however, their capacitive performance is still inadequate for practical applications. Recent research is mainly focused on enhancing manganese oxide capacitive performance through the incorporation of electrically conductive materials and by controlling its morphology to reveal a more active surface area for redox reactions. In this review, progress in the applications of manganese oxide carbon-based materials towards the development of highly effective SCs is briefly discussed. In this regard, manganese oxide carbon-based nanocomposites synthesis methods and techniques used to approximate the capacitance of electrode materials are discussed. Full article
