Conjugated polymers have piqued the interest of researchers working on energy technology applications, including supercapacitors, batteries, fuel cells, solar cells, green H2 production and thermoelectrics. Conjugated polymers have several advantages for such applications, including the tunability of performance owing to the simplicity of the molecular design, highly scalable synthesis, low-cost solution processability, excellent intrinsic conductivity, mechanical deformability, and lightweight mass, all of which are needed for foldable, flexible, and wearable next-generation energy and storage devices. Innovations in conjugated polymer chemistry and better understanding of the processing–structure–performance relationship are critical for realizing the potential of promising conjugated polymer structures.
Thus, it is our great pleasure to organize this Special Issue entitled “Emerging Conjugated Polymers for Energy Applications”. It features articles and reviews that cover conjugated polymers in a variety of energy technology applications. It demonstrates the conjugated polymer-related chemistry and structural control involved in various energy applications. We hope this Special Issue can further stimulate the interests and efforts of polymer scientists to address critical challenges in the field of energy technology applications. We cordially invite you to submit your original research articles and reviews to this Special Issue.

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.
