Special Issue "Advanced Materials for Supercapacitors"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 20 January 2024 | Viewed by 541
The rapid development of human society has triggered the urgent need for green and sustainable energy, as well as novel technologies addressing energy storage and conversion. The demand for cheaper and greener electricity means that the necessity of reliable storage methods is also escalating.
This is particularly true for the development of supercapacitors and battery storage devices. In this particular field, there is an urgent need to develop high-energy power-density devices in order to meet the specificities and increasing demands of various applications. Numerous novel materials, ranging from various forms of carbon, with porosities and surface areas tailored to the enhanced electrochemical double layer response, to nanostructured metal compounds for redox-based supercapacitors and asymmetric devices, are attracting increasing attention regarding such applications. Additionally, the need for energy storage systems that are applicable to electric vehicles is expected to significantly augment in the coming years, so the development of high-performance supercapacitors and batteries has become a subject of special interest. Understanding electrochemical properties is considered to be crucial in the development of supercapacitors and batteries.
To promote and advance the development of supercapacitors from scientific research to industry applications, as well as strengthen connections within academic circles, we are launching this Special Issue entitled “Advanced Materials for Supercapacitors”. Original research papers, reviews, and perspectives related to the scope of the Special Issue are warmly welcomed.

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. Crystals 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 2600 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.
