Batteries and supercapacitors are essential electrochemical energy storage systems (ESSs) in a wide range of fields, such as portable electronic devices, electric vehicles, smart grids, and aerospace. Electrolyte is a key part of batteries and supercapacitors, which has a significant impact on the electrochemical properties of the devices. Understanding the relationship of the electrochemical performance of devices and the electrolyte properties is of great significance due to its importance in creating higher-performance batteries and supercapacitors. Using novel electrolytes, batteries are expected to have the capability to support higher voltage, fast charging, and charging/discharging over a wide temperature range and non-flammability; and supercapacitors are expected to further improve energy density by increasing the cell voltage.
In this Special issue, we are looking for contributions helping to introduce recent advances and breakthroughs in electrolyte design for batteries and supercapacitors, addressing the correlation between battery performance, solvation structure, and solid-electrolyte-interphase chemistry, as well as novel electrolytes for batteries and supercapacitors to enable the enlargement of the electrochemical window, increase the ion conductivities and safety, improve the environmental friendliness, and reduce the cost.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
- Organic liquid electrolytes;
- Inorganic solid electrolytes;
- Ionic liquid electrolytes;
- Polymer-based electrolytes;
- Aqueous electrolytes;
- Hybrid electrolytes;
- Water-in-salt electrolytes;
- Eutectic solvent-based electrolytes;
- High-concentration ether-based electrolytes;
- Electrolyte additives.

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).
