Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Energy storage is a vital component of the energy system due to the enormous energy requirements of modern society. Three primary energy storage devices that can store energy include batteries, fuel cells, and supercapacitors. Of these, supercapacitors (SCs) or electrochemical capacitors have great potential in portable electronics, power grids, hybrid electric vehicles, and so on. Generally, electrochemical supercapacitors’ performance relies on the physical and electrochemical properties of their electrode materials. Given the increasing demand for supercapacitors, developing corresponding electrode materials that are richer in faradaic reactions, valence states, longstanding stability, and earth abundance is necessary. Therefore, this Special Issue focuses on new electrode materials preparation and their application in electrochemical supercapacitors.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Electrical double layer capacitor-type electrode materials;
  • Pseudocapacitor-type electrode materials;
  • Battery-type electrode materials;
  • Asymmetric supercapacitors;
  • Hybrid supercapacitors;
  • Hierarchical materials for supercapacitors;
  • Novel structured materials;
  • Energy storage mechanism.

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.
