Rechargeable batteries, such as lithium-ion batteries, are considered as the candidate technologies for several industrial sectors including electric vehicles, consumer electronics, and stationary energy storage. Increasing the energy density and lifespan of rechargeable batteries, which are restricted by their key components, is crucial to their widespread applications. Except for anode and cathode materials, binders and additives are also critical components of rechargeable batteries that significantly affect whole battery performances, despite only accounting for a very small ratio of the entire electrode or electrolyte. Therefore, it is a big interest to explore new functional binders and additives and investigate their roles in rechargeable batteries.
This Special Issue focuses on the progress of functional binders and additives for rechargeable batteries, such as metal-ion batteries, metal batteries, and metal-air/sulfur batteries.
Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
- New binders;
- Mechanical property of binders;
- Cross-linked polymeric networks;
- Additives for low-temperature batteries;
- Additives for high-voltage batteries;
- Additives for electrocatalysis in batteries.

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. Batteries 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 2700 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.
